What We Do

General Library Support

Life in Gwinnett County is exciting, constantly growing, diverse, and fun! Today’s Gwinnett County Public Library has evolved to keep pace! This is YOUR place to be inspired, learn new skills, improve your life, connect with others, or discover more about your community and the world.

By making a gift to this fund, your money will be used for the greatest need of GCPL.

Early Childhood Literacy Programs

We believe every child has the potential to succeed in life, but the path to success begins long before they enter a classroom. Researchers believe the learning skills that are developed between birth to age six hold the keys to success in school and life. Because 80% of a child’s brain is developed by the time the child enters kindergarten, the importance of providing young children with learning and early literacy experiences cannot be overstated.

According the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (2o15-2016), only 57.9% of Gwinnett’s third graders are reading at or above target level. That means 42.1% are not reading on level by the time they reach 3rd grade, and studies have shown that children who have not developed reading skills by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school.

GCPL can help to bridge the educational gap by offering exciting programs for our kids. Your investment in our Early Childhood Literacy Fund will allow the Gwinnett County Public Library to continue the essential work of supporting early literacy skills and training in the areas of our community that are most at-risk.

New Library Spaces

Investment in imaginative and captivating environments provides not just a room for shelves but strategic spaces that foster community, innovation and contemplation.

While advancing learning for residents of all ages and stages the library provides a place for residents and citizens to come together on levels and ways that they might not otherwise. From creative children’s spaces, to the “right kind” of gathering places for teens, to access points to new media, technology and information, to contemplative oases, to flexible idea labs- today’s public library is a birthplace for inspiration. By giving here, you will be helping our newest branches to provide spaces that foster that inspiration.
