The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man. —T.S. Eliot

Due to COVID-19 the reading room has been moved to the basement Horizon Room.  For daily use there is a limit of 4 persons at a time.   However, due to the recent rise in cases of COVID-19 in Valley County, there will be no public meetings or gatherings permitted inside the library during the month of September.  Please watch for further notices in the upcoming months.  

Currently not available due to COVID-19 - Meetings and Activities​: When operating normally, GCCL holds many activities and events upstairs in the reading area or downstairs where there is ample space, tables and seating.  A little known fact is that as this is your library; you may reserve the basement facilities for your events at the library (during library hours) free of charge.  To make a reservation or check for availability, please call the library at 228-2731.  You may also email the library through the contact page on our website.
