What’s happening this summer @ GFJ?

It’s almost time! Finishers can return their completed summer reading logs for prizes from August 18-September 1!

Haven’t signed up yet? There’s still time! Children birth through grade 6 can register in person to receive a paper reading log or participate virtually by going to gfjlibraryny09.readsquared.com. Those who complete the program will receive a free book and be entered in raffles for gift certificates. The more you read, the greater your chances of winning!

Story Time @ GFJ Mondays, July 11 to August 15 from 10-10:30am
Story times for children ages 2.5 to 5 and their caregivers will be held outside in front of the library. In case of rain, it will be canceled which will be posted on our website and Facebook page. No registration required.
