Introducing the GibLib Book Bike! Learn more at giblib.org/bike
The library’s Book Bike made its first public appearance at the town’s 150th celebrations, downtown on September 11, 2021. We plan to bring the bike and a load of free books to locations all over Gibsonville, and would love to involve volunteers who are looking for an active, outdoor way to add a little community service to their life. If you are interested in helping out with Book Bike events (ages 18 & over, for now), please let us know here. If you would like the Book Bike to stop in your neighborhood, you can make a stop request here.
Intro to IEPs and Special Education – Saturday, October 16 at 10:00 AM
Special education is a range of services that can be provided in different ways and different settings. There is no “one size fits all” approach when you’re trying to tailor services to meet the needs of students with disabilities. Learn more about special education and the IEP (Individualized Education Program) process, and get answers to your questions from an experienced special education professional.
