Library Book Club
The library book club meets at the Glasgow City-County Library every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. in the Horizon Room. Updates and additional events can also be found on our Facebook page. If you are interested in getting together to discuss good books, then please join us.
If you are in need of proctoring for educational and business reasons, the library is here to help. Library staff are available to proctor students for free. Please call the library during business hours to schedule an appointment.
Do you enjoy watching movies, or maybe catching up on your favorite TV series? We have over 3000 feature films, documentaries and television shows available for your enjoyment. DVDs are checked out for a week and can be renewed for an additional week. The fines are sort of steep, so you want to make sure to return them on time.
Movies and Series
The Courier archives are currently located at the library. Please feel free to contact the Courier if you are out of town and they will assist you. If you'd like to look at an archive, please contact the library and let them know beforehand. The library staff will locate your needed archives and set things up so that you can look through them at your leisure in our extended newspaper and magazine area.
