You don’t have to be a bookworm to love our libraries. The facilities are warm and inviting and open to all. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and eager to help. There’s space to relax with a book, public computers for browsing the Internet or searching for books, and a children’s section to stimulate young minds. In addition to traditional bound books, Marshes of Glynn Libraries patrons can check out CD’s and DVD’s, audiobooks and eBooks.
The recently renovated Brunswick Library at the corner of Gloucester and Bay Streets offers free Wi-Fi, art exhibits, yoga classes, crafting, movies, book discussion clubs and reading lessons for young children. They also hold regular workshops on subjects including personal finance, health and job hunting. Meeting spaces available for rent include a large conference room and two smaller meeting rooms.
For area researchers and historians, the Brunswick facility also includes a Heritage Room with records, maps and photographs detailing local history. The Glynn County Law Library offers free access to legal resources for the State of Georgia along with legal research databases.
The St. Simons Island Library is located in the St. Simons Casino Building at the Pier Village. Like its Brunswick counterpart, the St. Simons Library offers free Wi-Fi, public computers, a children’s section, special events and just outside, a spectacular view of St. Simons Sound with comfortable rocking chairs ideal for reading a good book. Locals and visitors are quick to praise the extraordinarily helpful and friendly staff.
The Marshes of Glynn Libraries is a participant in the Georgia Library PINES (Public Information Network for Electronic Services) program. Library card holders who join the PINES network (at no charge) can access books and materials at any of the 52 participating library systems throughout the state and have them delivered to their home library.
For research into an extensive variety of topics, the virtual library GALILEO offers access to over 100 databases including thousands of periodicals, encyclopedias, business directories and government publications. For those interested in learning a new language, GALILEO offers access to the MANGO language learning system.
Some of the Library’s most ardent supporters are members of the Friends of the Library, a fund-raising group that operates a used book store in the Brunswick library and holds semi-annual book sales and sponsors a variety of reading programs. They are always on the lookout for new members.
