|Galt- Marian O. Lawrence Library|
The "down-home friendly" Galt Library was established in 1908 and is the second-oldest library in Sacramento County. In 1993 the City of Galt built the beautiful new Galt-Marian O. Lawrence Library, which is named after a former Galt mayor and dedicated supporter of the library.
The library's service area is in the southern part of Sacramento County and includes portions of northern San Joaquin County. Communities served include Galt, Wilton, Herald, Acampo, and Lockeford. Approximately 18,000 people reside within this geographical area.
The library is particularly dedicated to serving the needs of children and students. We offer year-round special programming as well as weekly preschool story time. The library provides customized "homework collections," Internet access, and word processors for school reports. We have an extensive collection of materials in Spanish to serve our Hispanic community.
The Galt-Marian O. Lawrence Library is a repository for Galt Historical Society materials, as well as City of Galt information and documents. Community support of the library has been impressive with many successful fund raisers sponsored by the Friends of Galt-Marian O. Lawrence Library. In just six years, the branch Friends have purchased almost $20,000 in new books, furniture, and equipment for the library.
