ATTENTION TEENS: You have a space at the main library!
Thanks to the Friends of the Gaston County Public Library (FGCPL), a space near the front of the library's main level is now dedicated solely to teens. New paint, furniture and shelving have been added to the space, and the teen and young adult literature section has also been relocated to the area. The new furniture even features electrical outlets for your laptop, tablet and other mobile devices.
Check out the new space and know that you are always welcome in the library!
