Long Description:
"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 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 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 Galt Affiliate Friends. In just six years the Galt Friends have purchased almost $20,000 in new books, furniture and equipment for the library." (visit link)
