We are so pleased to announce....Evenings at the Library!! We are running workshops for adults over the age of 18, all with amazing guests. We will have fun snacks and mocktails, for a lovely evening out. We hope we have something for everyone! 

Stay tuned for Fall dates for Evenings at the Library.


Join us every Friday between 1:00-2:30pm for a drop in program for anyone over the age of 18 here at the Library. We offer guest speakers, learning about our community and best of all, meeting and connecting with people. We also always have coffee/tea and a sweet snack on hand.

Coffee/Tea & Connection will return in the fall 2024.  


We have partnered up with our friends at Grand River Chop House and you can join us on the beautiful patio at the Chop House on the last Tuesday of the summer months, June-September for a drink, a snack and fabulous conversation about our chosen books. So here are the details, there is no registration necessary, however GVPL will only be ordering 15 copies of the selected books and it is first come, first serve for a copy. You must have a library card to receive a book (but that is super easy to get and FREE if you don't already have one!) The books should arrive at the library approximately a month before our book club date. *food and drink for purchase, please drink responsibly*
