Join fellow enthusiasts as we watch the partial solar eclipse today! We will have safe viewing equipment available. In the event of inclement weather, a live streaming view of the total eclipse will be shown inside the library. The visible eclipse here will begin at 1 pm and maximum phase of the eclipse will be at 2:30 pm. Plan to stop by for observing and enjoy light refreshments for this momentous event. No registration needed.
Due to overwhelming interest, we are OUT of the eclipse viewing glasses. However, no need to panic. Here is great info on how to find other sources (though it may be diffiicult the closer to the event we get) or make your own. Happy, safe viewing!

The Geauga County Public Library has seen a lot of growth since 1963, and as community needs change, we continue to evolve to serve patrons. This Nov. 7, we are reaching out to voters to help us fund capital improvements across all our facilities. We are putting a half-mill bond issue on the ballot. This costs Geauga homeowners of a $100,000 house approximately $16 per year. That’s less than the equivalent of many hardbound bestselling books at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Have questions for Director Ed Worso? Here’s your opportunity to meet him and have a townhall conversation. Learn how GCPL serves the county and helps people find what drives their dreams. Ask Ed, along with members of Board of Trustees and administration team, questions and learn how GCPL's plans will affect you.
