Thank you to Luke Burgess, a Galway Eagle Scout candidate, who completed his project and donated it to the library. This handy box of stacking compartments now holds the littleBits for our Tinker Tuesday program, keeping everything neat, and safely out of the reach of small children!
Free service available: resume help. Make an appointment for any Wednesday with Steve and he will go over your resume with you, critiquing and offering helpful hints.
We have new options for your Fine Forgiveness.
If you owe an overdue fine, you may continue to pay it off with cash or volunteer to work off the amounts. Or try our new methods: 1. “Read Down Your Fine” is intended for youths 17 & under. For every 1/2 hour they read (or are read to) in the library, they will get the equivalent of $1 off the amount they owe for overdue fines. 2. “Can Food” supports the GGCSA food pantry. For every can or non-perishable item brought in, we will reduce the overdue fine by $1.00. All methods are only valid for Galway fines and overdues. Replacement costs for lost items are not eligible for fine reduction.
ART IN THE LIBRARY! Our current Featured Artist is Sharon Kingsbury. Be sure to come in to see her “Ghost Series” paintings! Are you an artist? Sign up at the front desk if you’d like to participate.
We’re always getting in new materials for you to read or view. See our New Titles here.
From the Galway Public Library Board of Trustees:
Since the referendum to support the building of a new library did not pass in September, we have been asked what plans are for the future. The answer is that there are no concrete plans for the future at this time. We are taking a step back to listen to the community again. We are interested in knowing why people voted no, and we want to know what the community will support going forward. We appreciate any feedback we receive. Please stop by the library and voice your opinions. We want to serve the community in the best ways that we can.
