A Quarterly Message from
Library Director Lindsey Dorfman

From LINES Newsletter & Program Guide


Here at GPL, we are eagerly looking toward the future and excited to start implementing our new Strategic Plan that will run through 2024. Over 1,000 residents participated in our recent survey, and that invaluable input helped us shape our future goals.

Over the next few years, the Library will work toward expanding engagement, visibility, and access. You can look forward to many exciting new services to enhance your library experience and make it more convenient. Future projects include updated branding, an improved website, and new state-of-the-art self-checkout stations. Click here for more information on the Library’s 2022-2024 Strategic Plan.

We are happy to announce one major improvement to service this year. Beginning December 1, the Library will officially be fine-free! So you no longer have to deal with pesky late fees when you forget to return your materials on time and, if you’ve been avoiding the Library because of overdue fines, your account will be cleared of all overdue fine-related charges. We are confident that this change will make using the Library easier and more convenient for everyone. Read more about it here.
