There are many volunteer opportunities at the library. We are in urgent need of people who can help run craft programs for adults. Have you recently created something really cool? Would you like to share how to make it with others? Then I need you. Sharing crafts is a fun way to spend an evening. Call Chris at the library 882-6385 or leave a message and let’s arrange a good time. Email suggestions to galway@sals.edu

We are pleased to announce that the Story Quilt project of the Galway Public Library has won the 2007 Joseph F. Shubert Award for Library Excellence from the New York State Library.  This award recognizes the efforts of individual libraries and/or library systems in all of New York State that have initiated innovative and/or exemplary programs aimed towards enhancing library services for their constituents.

This is a high honor indeed for our small library and for our big hearted community.  We can all be proud of this accomplishment – both individually and collectively.

Hi Everyone,

The library catalog has been upgraded. There is a new spelling helper. It’ll say  “Did you mean?…..” and make some suggestions. Some people like it some do not. Please let us know if you have any problems.

 Notice the availability button after you search for something. It will tell you if Galway Public Library owns it and gives you the option to see if any other libraries in our system own it. Remember you can borrow things from other libraries in our region. We can have it sent here for you to pick up.

Happy Searching!
