Taking a break from regular programming…
There will be no regular storytimes or STEAM activities scheduled in August.  We’re taking a break after a busy 6 weeks of Summer Reading and getting ready for a year of new activities starting in September.

Watch for announcements of what’s coming up on our Facebook and  Instagram.

Homeschool Boot Camp, Wednesdays at 10am in August

Aug 4 – Intro to Homeshooling: Rules, Regs, and Local Groups
Aug 11 – Connecting to free resources and activities at the Library
Aug 18 – Curriculum Look & Materials Swap
Aug 25 – Community Conversation: Missing Pieces – What do you need?

Community Conversations – What are your missing pieces?
The Gibsonville Public Library is organizing a series of community conversations to find out what pieces are still missing to help our Gibsonville families bounce back from Covid-19. Help us determine the best day, time, and method to bring our community together in conversation. Our goal is to gather real, useful information from a broad, diverse sampling of our community and share what we learn with our local schools, government, and community groups. The more we know about what our community REALLY needs right now, the better we as a town will be able to respond with effective and relevant services. You can read more about this project at giblib.org/ltc
