Guelph Public Library staff are working to update and improve our Blogs. In order to do this we are ceasing our posts for a few months. In the late summer, early fall, we will be creating one GPL blog that reflects our new branding.
So stay tuned… we’ll be back soon.
Have a great Summer!

Friends of the Guelph Public Library Annual General Meeting
Wednesday, April 27, 2016 (7:30 pm – 8:45 pm) @ the Main Library
GUEST SPEAKER: DERRICK THOMSON, DEPUTY CAO for PUBLIC SERVICES, CITY OF GUELPH
Culture, Tourism, and Community Investments fall within Mr. Thomson’s portfolio of responsibility. He has been involved with Library Development in other municipalities and he is involved in unfolding Library issues in Guelph.
Come and hear the latest from the perspective of a very senior City staff member on this issue that is so central to our organization.
There are many types of City gardens from potted balcony gardens to community gardens. There are also many ways to get help with planning your garden, whether you are a beginner or seasoned gardener looking for new ideas. The City of Guelph has a Healthy Landscapes program that supports City residents and there are also many other organizations that can support your gardening endeavours.
There are also great gardening resources at the Library!
