The Garnavillo Public Library


Get Caught Reading Month

May is officially Get Caught Reading month, but the celebration lasts throughout the year. Get Caught Reading is a nationwide public service campaign launched by the Association of American Publishers to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read.  Get Caught Reading Month in May is all about reading books and raising awareness regarding the advantages of indulging in literature. The genres of books you can read include nonfiction, history, fables, etc — the options are unlimited. So get your hands on some books and start reading!

Visit your local library and pick up a good read and get caught reading!

CURB SIDE / GRAB & GO Option Still Available

We will still offer Curbside/ Grab & Go for anyone who choses that option. Reserve your items online, email the library at garnavillolibrary@gmail.com or call and talk to a librarian. We will be happy to pull items and place them in the entry way for you to pick them up at a scheduled time.

 What else do I need to know?

The library encourages patrons and staff to wear a mask when in the library to help protect yourself and others.  We also ask that you sanitize or wash your hands before entering the main part of the library and also before leaving the library. We will have several locations in the lobby that has sanitizer available to use while at the library. We are asking that you practice social distancing while in the library building.

 For the safety of library staff and your neighbors, we ask that you do not use the library as a gathering place at this time. We are happy to assist you to find and retrieve materials, answer reference questions and offer short term computer use. Thank you for keeping our town safe!

Thank you for your cooperation!
