ABOUT THE LIBRARY

GLEASON PUBLIC LIBRARY POLICIES

The mission of the Gleason Public Library is to be an integral part of the Carlisle community by offering a wide variety of popular and reference materials in various formats to meet the recreational, informational, educational and cultural needs of Carlisle’s citizens. In addition to encouraging life-long learning for members of the community, the library serves as a supplemental resource for students of all ages and as a resource for community information. As the Board of Trustees adopts policies, they will be made available at this location.

WEATHER CLOSING POLICY

Weather Closing: If the Carlisle Public Schools are closed due to weather, the Gleason Public Library will have a delayed opening of Noon. If conditions remain extreme, risking staff and patrons, the library will remain closed for the day. If the library phone is not answered by Noon, assume the library is closed for the day.
