 Supporting the Library

The Girard Public Library addition was completed in April of 2002 and is fully handicapped accessible with an elevator, restrooms and parking. Come in and use the new facility. There are meeting rooms for the public, a large more functional genealogy/history area. A computer lab with 6 computers upstairs for Young Adults and Adults and a lab on the main level with 4 computers for the children. We have plenty of tables and chairs and a comfortable seating area for reading the newspapers or magazines. Use the convenient parking lot on the north side of the building. We hope to see you soon.
