We have our Friends Book Sales planned for 2023, so mark your calendars. Our Spring sale is:
May 1 – 5 during Library hours. The Friends special sale is on Monday from 9:30 AM – 1 PM. There will be plenty of items for you to browse through. More information is soon to come.

Take a look at all the wonderful things that have happened.

The Friends of GMPL have added a new Little Personal Pantry for area residents in need of personal products.

Donations are accepted to help maintain the pantry. The Friends will take items such as soap, toothpaste, shampoos, deodorants, cleaning products and more. Contributions sustain the pantry and can be dropped off at the Library.

The pantry is located on the parking lot side of the Library and is open 24/7 for anyone in need.

Take what you need, give what you can. The Friends goal is to make sure anyone in the community who is in need of items such as these, has easy and convenient access to these products.

Take a look at our Little Free Pantry below. Have you checked out our Personal Pantry located on the parking lot side of the Library? Please pick-up any items you may need.

Food Pantry

We are very excited to announce that our first Little Free Pantry is now a reality!! The Friends partnered with the Village of Grafton to bring the first Free Pantry to our community. Our motto is: “TAKE WHAT YOU NEED. GIVE WHAT YOU CAN.”

Food insecurity is a reality for many families today. Whether you have a need for food, or you have a desire to give, little pantries help neighbors feed neighbors in need. We hope to have a second pantry in the near future for personal items such as soap, detergent, etc.

You can visit the Pantry on Main Street to the right of the Library. If you wish to donate non-perishable items that are not out of date, you can drop off your items in the lobby of the Village Hall right across the street during regular business hours.
