New Year, Know More

Happy 2016, everyone!

This year I have made the resolution to get more information out to the public about the variety of services the Gretna Public Library has to offer its community.

Whether it’s sharing an overview of our databases and other helpful resources, information on events and programs, circulation materials or various library policies, it’s going to be a goal of mine to tell more people about all the ways the library can serve you and your family in 2016.

In 2016, you will see materials at the library and on our website with the phrase, Know More About…  This phrase will be our tool for promoting information that you may want to “know more about.”

I’m really excited to for all the good things to come for the library this year, and look forward to helping the Gretna community Know More About the many resources we have available!

Wishing you all a Happy New Year (and happy reading)!

Gretna Public Library Director
