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.
In case of inclement weather, the Gleason Public Library will have a delayed opening of noon, if the Carlisle Public Schools are closed. Should the weather continue to be hazardous, the library will post its hours of operation on the Gleason Public Library homepage.
