Wednesday... After School Programs

The library will be holding After School Programs of the following Wednesdays at 2:30 PM.

September 20, 2023 was the start of the 2023 Early Out - After School program at the library.  We had a great turn out with 24 children and 5 adults. A story was read by Mrs. Meyer and dressing up as a scarcrow and racing in the library was the activity. Everyone had a great time.                      

 Check the library FACEBOOK page and newspapers for some photos.

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.

Library Dinnerware

In the Library there is a display of dinnerware with "LIBRARY" stamped on the items. We are looking for more information on the history of these items. Maybe they were used for the Tuesday Study Club and possibly purchased around 1950. If you have any information on these dishes, please contact the library at 964-2119 and talk with one of the librarians.
