Story Quilt: Poems of a Place by the People Who Live Here
This professionally produced book of narrative poetry by the people of Galway is the outcome of Story Quilt, an award-winning project of the Galway Public Library. Through the Story Quilt project, more than 100 poems were collected from the community—natives and newcomers, young and old—that capture the unique but universally American character of our town.
One thousand copies were printed in the first run of this beautifully designed paperback book. Proceeds from the sale of the book (publication price: $15.00) will fund art and literary programs for children, adults, and families at the Galway Public Library.
Books are available for sale at the Library.

We are pleased to announce that the Story Quilt project of the Galway Public Library won the 2007 Joseph F. Shubert Award for Library Excellence from the New York State Library. This award recognizes the efforts of individual libraries and/or library systems in all of New York State that have initiated innovative and/or exemplary programs aimed towards enhancing library services for their constituents.
This is a high honor indeed for our small library and for our big hearted community. We can all be proud of this accomplishment – both individually and collectively.
