 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!

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.
