First step toward a new Gibsonville library
On December 6th, the Town board approved the purchase of land with the intention of building a new library on it! We don’t have a timeline yet, but this first step is incredibly exciting! The property is right next to the Gibsonville Community Center on Minneola.

Tuesday Morning Storytimes – 10:00 AM in the Community Room
Children birth – age 5 are invited (along with their caregivers) to visit the library for story time! Share songs, stories, and activities with Miss Ashley. Storytimes will be held in the library’s community room, so space is limited. No registration is required for Tuesday morning storytimes – walk-ins and first-time visitors are welcome.
Small Group Storytimes – schedule a time for your group starting in January 2022
We know everybody is busy – so starting in January, the library is giving families the option to schedule small group storytimes that work for their unique schedules. We will still offer our Tuesday Morning storytimes as a walk-in friendly, no-registration-needed option for library visitors, but will cap attendance at all indoor storytimes at 10 people – including children and adults.
Families may request their desired day and time using the form below. Once confirmed, feel free to invite friends to join the fun – just make sure that your total group size does not exceed 10 people. Each group may only request one storytime each week. Request your small group storytime online here or call the library at 336-449-6455 to request a day and time that work for you.
