Programs and Collections for Adults

Gladstone Regional Libraries’ branches have collections of fiction and non-fiction books for adults, as well as large print books, magazines, CDs, audio books, and DVDs. Gladstone City Library has an Adult Literacy collection with readers, English as a second language materials, and books in languages other than English; as well as a Local Collection Room with materials for researching local or family history. We also have an eLibrary, available free with your library card, for access to eBooks, eAudio Books, eMagazines, streaming films, and eLearning topics and courses.

Each library has free public computers with internet access and a variety of programs. There is also free WiFi available during library opening hours.

My Library is a free technology and information assistance service for adults for individual or small group training or help.

Throughout the year we have programs and events at our libraries for adults of all ages. Library programs and events provide opportunities for lifelong learning and meeting people in the local community.
