Get ready for our all-ages family event, Smarty Pants presents The Big Balloon Show, from 10:30-11:15 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29 at Geneva Park District’s Sunset Community Center, 410 Western Ave., Geneva. Tickets are now available for Geneva Public Library cardholders – just stop by the library to pick them up.
This is a one-of-a-kind vaudeville-style stage production featuring magic, all-ages comedy, interactive storytelling and larger-than-life balloon props.
New library update:
Crews are focusing on interior work for the new Geneva Public Library under construction at 227 S. Seventh St. Visit gpldnewbuilding.org for a sneak peek inside. We hope to wrap up construction in the spring of 2020. Once construction is complete, there are several steps we must perform before we can move to the new library, including reviewing the punch list, undergoing inspections, installing furniture and shelving, setting up the network, tagging the collection, and packing at the current library to prepare for the move. The moving date will depend on the timeframe required for the punch lists, inspections, and installations.
Get regular updates on progress of the new library and the status of our current building at gpld.org. Please contact us anytime at Board@gpld.org.
The Librarian Recommends
Library Associate Ruth Glen recommends “Meet Me at the Museum” by Anne Youngson. “This debut is a charming epistolary novel about strangers who discover themselves in letter writing,” she said.
