In addition to special events, activities, and exhibits, the Galion Public Library offers regular programming that takes place each month.

Designed to cater to a diverse range of interests and age groups, these gatherings are not just about pursuing hobbies but also about building a sense of community and connection. Here’s a sneak peek into the array of activities lined up for the coming months.

Unleash Your Creativity

Adult Craft Night is an invitation to unleash your creativity. Scheduled on the first Friday of every month starting at 4:00 PM, it welcomes individuals aged 15 and above. The best part? It’s free! The crafting themes vary, and details are regularly updated on the library’s Facebook page. Some sessions may extend from 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM, subject to the nature of the craft.

Coffee & Coloring at Three Bean Coffee House is another exciting event. Held every 2nd Tuesday from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM, this cozy session combines the art of coloring with the warmth of a coffee house.
