Library’s Vision: The Garden City Public Library serves our community as its center for life-long learning.
Since its founding in 1961, the Garden City Public Library (GCPL) has taken pride in inspiring life-long learning, advancing knowledge, and strengthening our community through:
- A quality collection of books, CDs, DVDs, and other educational materials.
- Innovative programs and classes for children, teens, and adults.
- A competitive selection of online services.
- Access to wifi and computers.
These amenities, coupled with a friendly and knowledgeable staff, have helped make the GCPL the Idaho Library of the Year for 2019.
The Garden City Public Library has a collection of over 55,000 new and popular titles and serves around 450 people each day.
This library is a member of the LYNX! Consortium. The LYNX! consortium is a partnership between twelve city and district libraries in southern Idaho to share an online catalog, services, and variety of materials members may borrow, reducing costs and barriers to access for all.

The Garden City Public Library aims to be a place where families and friends can feel comfortable engaging with each other, the community, and the written word. This is why our website proclaims us as “Not A Quiet Library.” Whether reading the paper and gazing at the Greenbelt, singing through a story time, or watching a YouTube video, we hope our library users will feel like they’re coming home.
