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.
There are events and programs available for adults of all ages at our libraries, throughout the year, under the banner of Library Sideshow, check the events calendar for details. Library Sideshow provides opportunities for lifelong learning and meeting people in the local community.
A new series of sessions is being planned for Library Sideshow; the ‘Is this for me?’ program will provide a variety of information sessions, workshops, and community meetups.
