Exciting new opportunities at the library!
We are pleased to announce that Galway Public Library is the recipient of a Southern Adirondack Library System 2015 Early Adapter Technology Grant. In collaboration with Galway Central School, we are offering a Tinker Tuesday after school Program, which features littleBits technology and promotes STEM and STEAM education. Plus it’s fun! The Tinker Thursday sessions are open to all who want to try out the technology. You can learn more about littleBits here and here. Be sure to look at the photos and videos on our Facebook page to see examples of what we’ve been making!
Good News! The deadline for submissions to the Spring Photo Contest for Kids has been extended to May 9th. Maybe by then you’ll find something to photograph besides mud and we can brighten up the library with a display of the winning photos! See our Events Calendar for all the details.
Stop in and read to our new Therapy Dog, Glint. He will be in the library once a month! Check the event calendar for dates and times.
Are you interested in genealogy? Want to find out more about your ancestors? Your library can help! We now offer our patrons access to the online Ancestry.com, Library Edition. Come in to the library and use one of our four public computers to start your search!
