Wear your heart on your sleeve during Love Your Library Month. Pick up a temporary tattoo during an in-library appointment or request one during Curbside Pickup hours. Snap a picture of your new ink and share it on social (Facebook or Instagram) with the hashtag #ilovegfp_ (or email to accessinfo@gflibrary.com).

Let us know why you love the library for a chance to win a gift card to Steers Somali Restaurant. One lucky winner will be selected March 2, 2021.

Also, in celebration of Love Your Library Month, we are extending checkout time for video games from one to two weeks. You can search our online catalog by name or narrow your search by clicking Type of Material > Video Game. Or, book an appointment in the library to browse our vast collection.
