Main Library's 40th Birthday Celebration

The Gaston County Public Library will host a drop-in event to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Main Library on Garrison Boulevard. The festivities will be in the auditorium on Wednesday, November 14 at 3:00 p.m. There will also be a brief, special program at 4:00 p.m.

The Main Library opened its doors on November 13, 1978 and was formally dedicated in February 1979. As part of the celebration, we have invited the family members of the dignitaries who attended the original dedication ceremony to participate in the festivities. We have also invited all current and former employees, especially those who have worked at the Main Library.
