The Granville Public Library is now a Climate Resilience hub. We are committed to providing resources and programs for those interested in learning how to become better prepared for a changing climate.  Stop in for books on how to prepare for the changes in our climate, education on both how and why climate changes, or even on what climate is vs weather.

On going Covid pandemic Guidelines

We are once again fully open to the public.  We require masks indoors. We are always willing to provide curbside service for any patron who desires it. Just give us a call and we will do our best to serve you.

Open Book

We are open to support our patrons

Inside browsing is once again available.

So what are we doing at the Granville Public Library? 

It is important that the library is a safe space for everyone.

Young children and their families are daily visitors at our library.

Because most children are not yet eligible and many in our community are not yet fully vaccinated, we are strongly encouraging the following to our staff and patrons:


  • Staff will wear masks inside.

  • Masks for all patrons will be worn for indoor visits and activities. 

  • The plexiglass screen will remain in place, but check-out can now be done via handing cards and books to staff. 

  • Cleaning will continue on a weekly basis.   No additional cleaning on high touch areas.

  • Curbside will always remain available for those who need or want it, but otherwise full browsing without limits, including computer use.

  • For current Hampden Country Covid  Statistics, visit the Public Health Institute of Western Mass  for the Hampden County Covid Data Dashboard.

Did you know we want to help you with Connectivity? We have remote Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspots  and Chromebooks for you to borrow. The first one we received, the Verizon Hotspot, is funded by the Library Club.  An additional 5, which will be coming soon, are being funded by American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds administered through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspots can have a real impact, especially for underserved communities. Hotspots help to:

  • Close the homework gap by offering home Internet service for families with school-aged children

  • Allow you to participate in online courses such as HiSET (GED) classes

  • Provide you access to telehealth services

  • Support workforce development and job skills trainings

Stop in and ask us how you can borrow one.
