Normal Hours for Browsing and Computer Use

We are open our regularly scheduled hours for in-person browsing and computer use. If you prefer not to come inside, we are also open for curbside pickup so you can get your books, materials, or copies/faxes remotely. We also have grab-and-go crafts for kids. Please call the library at 287-0191 or email if you need any help at all selecting material, putting things on hold, need recommendations, or need print/fax services.

September is Library Card Sign-up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Gouverneur Public Library joins the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning. There is nothing more empowering than signing up for your own library card. Stop in and see us to sign up for a library card or to learn more about the library’s resources and programs.
