Upcoming Events at the Library

Good libraries provide more for their communities than just books to read. Here at the Granville County Library System we have programs available for everyone in the family. Check out some of our upcoming events and call or visit us if you have any questions!


Storytime: Young children and their caregivers enjoy songs, stories, fingerplays, and crafts at the library. Join us at the Stovall Branch Library: Mondays at 10:30am, or at the South Branch Library: Tuesdays at 10:30am, or at the Thornton Library: Wednesdays at 10:30am.

LEGO Club: Unleash your LEGO creativity! This bi-weekly drop-in program will allow children to create LEGO masterpieces that will be displayed at the library. Weekly themes can be explored to inspire inventiveness. Imagination is required!

Valentines and Cookie Decorating:

Teen Advisory Board: 

We want to give teens a voice in the library! Teens decide the programs they want at the library plus the books/DVDs that land on the shelves. Participating also counts toward community service hours for school.

Join us at the Thornton Library on the first Saturday of each month at 4:00pm. 




Teen Time: Teens hang out with friends, have fun and relax! Play games, eat snacks and do whatever else teens like to do at the library. Join us at the South Branch Library on the third Tuesday of every month at 3:30pm.

Teen Volunteering: Do you need community service hours for school? Want to boost your resume for college? Looking to help your community? Volunteer at the library! Simply ask for an application at the front desk of any library branch.
