Attention Local Authors!

GPL would like to recognize and honor the many talented beginning authors that we have locally.  There are many in our community who are working on written works, whether it be short stories, poems, novels, or other written work.  We would like to display these works for the community to see.  If you are a local author (or are just beginning to work toward that goal) please contact Andrea or Christine at the library as soon as possible (357-5485).  We would like to showcase our aspiring authors at the library during the holidays.  Lets come together as a community to support and encourage the budding talent in Garrett!

Goodnight, Garrett!
