News and Updates …

Summer Reading Programs are starting up soon!

Register for the adult, teen and children’s summer reading programs. It’s easy to join – just sign up at Gaylord Library. You might win a prize! These programs run from Thursday, June 23rd to Saturday, July 30th. 

NEW DATE: Friday, July 8th at 10:30am is our summer reading kickoff! Mary Jo Maichack will be entertaining all who attend with her award winning storytelling and song program for all ages. Registration for the children’s program, On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!, will be available at this event.

Summer reading programs are sponsored by your local library, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.


Gaylord Memorial Library would like to thank the South Hadley Cultural Council for their support of these events: “Seeds, Land and Stories” and “This-A-Way, Mezudio”!

This program is supported in part by a grant from the South Hadley Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.


Wine, Cheese and Chocolate Moments

What a night!  The Wine, Cheese and Chocolate fundraising event on June 4  was enjoyed by over 90 guests who came together to raise funds for the library and to celebrate its important place in our community.  We thank all of our supporters – attendees, donors and volunteers.

eBooks are Here!

Here it is… You asked for digital content and we heard you! The Commonwealth eBook Collections program was created to better serve, educate, and inform the patrons of Massachusetts Libraries. From our website, you can search for eBooks and more from our partners – BiblioLabs, EBL, and Baker & Taylor. Search for a book, check it out, download the materials to your device, and you’re off and running! The Commonwealth eBook Collections program is brought to you by the Massachusetts Library System in partnership with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and the Millmont Foundation. Need help getting started? Make a Mission Possible Tech Help appointment!

Why Borrow A Chromebook?

We have two new Chromebooks – one for in-library use and one which may be checked out for one week by patrons over 18. Borrow a Chromebook to try out, to take on a trip, or when your own computer is being repaired! We thank a generous anonymous donor for providing this service. Further information in the body of the newsletter!
