Geneseo Library celebrates Library Week

Library Week is April 04 - 10, 2021.  We hope our patrons will drop off canned goods for our "Food for Fines" program.  Each canned good forgives one dollar in fines.  The canned goods will go to the Geneseo - Atkinson Food Pantry.  We also have prizes for children and adults!

Come in during Library Week and register for prizes.  Be sure and sign up for a Library Card.  It will be the Smartest Card you ever own!
