Bright Ideas Grant Project: Active Bodies, Active Minds!
The Library is proud to announce that we are the first public library in North Carolina to be awarded a Bright Ideas grant by the State Library of NC. This grant will allow us to bring reading materials and supplies to facilitate outdoor activities to families in neighborhoods around Gibsonville.
Watch for announcements about Book Bike visits that will include this Active Bodies, Active Minds initiative coming soon!
Programming Break: May 30 – June 10
Regular weekly programs will take a 2 week break to give library staff time to prepare for Summer Reading. This means no storytimes, homeschool, or afterschool activities between May 30 and June 10th.
Check out the events calendar at giblib.org/events to see all upcoming events.
Our Large Print Collection is Growing!
To help our library users that primarily read Large Print titles, we’ve created a new section just for Large Print books. We’re also focusing on ordering new Large Print titles as they are available.
To see a listing of our Large Print titles, just visit bit.ly/gpl-lp. Remember, you can reserve specific books online and then come pick them up at your convenience!
