Who hasn’t wondered where to look for information? Whether people want to find jobs, evade scam artists, get passports, find a great novel, browse a video collection, learn to download music or eBooks – or just hang out with friends at a community program, the library is the go-to resource for solving problems and enjoying entertainment options.
To highlight available resources that address patron-identified issues, GCPL is launching its 2016 campaign: “Problem? Solved.” Each month, the library will share one specific problem identified by patrons, and offer resources to help people research potential solutions. The campaign kicks off in January 2016, with the first problem focusing on avoiding germs during a time when many people get sick.
Problem? How do I stay healthy during cold and flu season?
Solution: Visit GeaugaLibrary.net in January to find a list of free resources including books and articles with practical information for all ages in both print and digital formats. GCPL is also giving away free hand sanitizer spray and facial tissue packs while supplies last to help customers keep germs away.
GCPL has an extensive collection of varied materials to help you find the information you need to solve your problems. And, our classes and programs answer questions ranging from Medicare and advance directives to scrapbooking and wine pairing.
If you have a particular problem you would like information and resources for, let your local librarian know. We’ll get our special teams on it and help you find resources that point to a solution.
