Dear Library Community:
So much has happened since we have had to close the libraries in March!  We really miss seeing you, our library patrons, and hope you are staying well.  We don’t know yet when the libraries can re-open.  Please know that the we are still here for you, and there are many library services you can access online.  If you have any questions about how to download Ebooks or Audiobooks, or have any other reference needs, please ask us!  Note that GVL will soon start up a one-one one Online Technology Tutoring service.
