School/Public Library


The Gladstone School and Public Library is closing following the announcement by Governor Gretchen Whitmer and State Superintendent Michael Rice concerning the closure of all Michigan K-12 school buildings, public, private and boarding, starting Monday, March 16 through Sunday, April 5. The library will open when Gladstone Area Schools reopens.  Library materials that are currently checked out will have a new due date of April 17 so there will be no late fees.
