Marshes of Glynn Library:
Turning the Page Campaign
The Marshes of Glynn Libraries' Brunswick Library is getting a much-needed facelift to modernize its interior, as well as updating its collection and programming. Over the next year, the library will undergo extensive renovation, with completion in the summer of 2019. While the construction aspect is primarily utilizing funds from a State capital grant and local County match, the necessary improvements to print, digital and programming resources must also be funded. The need for these funds must be privately raised, which has given rise to the  Turning the Page campaign . See below for funding needs and campaign opportunities.
