Winter Kids Craft Hour

The Garnavillo Public will be holding a Winter Kids Craft Hour on Saturday, January 21 from 11:00 AM to Noon. Come join us at the library and be creative. Look for the snowman on skis in the children’s section of the Library for a chance to enter in our Winter contest.



The Garnavillo Public will be accepting non perishable food items, personal supplies and cleaning supplies for the Clayton County Food Shelf. If you would like to donate, just bring in your items and put them in our designated box set up for the County food shelf. The librarians will make sure that the items in the box are delivered to the food shelf.                                   Thank you for any support that you can give to this project.

Dry Cleaning .... pick up and drop off site.

The Library is now accepting items to be dropped off for the Decorah Cleaners to pick up.  The cleaners pick up the items on Tuesdays but items can be brought in during library hours and placed in the holding location at the library.  Talk to a librarian if you have any questions about this service.
