With nine Learning Labs, there’s likely one near you. Start the year off right by exploring our Learning Labs and see where your curiosity takes you.

Not sure where to begin? No problem! You can schedule a Book-A-Librarian with one of our Learning Lab Specialists, who can help you get started. Additionally, we offer a variety of events, programs, and workshops throughout the year where you can learn alongside other enthusiastic individuals. Depending on your project, you may need to acquire your own materials, but our Learning Labs are entirely free to reserve for Gwinnett County Public Library cardholders. Out-of-county residents can obtain a card for an annual fee of $40. Visit your closest branch to get more information about non-resident library cards. With a library card, you’ll have access to an extensive array of free resources, tools, equipment, and software to help you in your learning journey.

There are also some exciting events happening this year that you won’t want to miss. Mark your calendars for the Student Film Festival Awards on March 23rd at our Snellville Branch. If gaming is more your style, join us for the GCPL Game Jam Showcase during the Free Comic Book Day Event in downtown Lawrenceville on May 4th. Our RISE Pitch Presentation & Awards Ceremony will happen at our Lilburn branch on February 24th.

Throughout the year, we have even more incredible events planned, so make sure to stay tuned to our events page and keep an eye out for more amazing opportunities to show what you’ve learned.
