Summer Reading Activities Fill June, July

Every Hero Has a Story!

Summer Reading at Elbert County Library continues with a full slate of activities each week.  Every Friday morning at 10:30 there's a program that includes storytelling, and crafts or other fun activity.  On Monday afternoons there are classes for children in grades 3 and up, and on Tuesday afternoons we hold Legos at the Library where kids of all ages can enjoy playing with the Library's Legos. 

The Library will be closed on Friday, July 3, but Friday programs will resume on July 10 with "Heroes in Mythology".  The final three weeks will feature super heroes -- including their sidekicks and everyone's favorite villains. On Saturday, July 18 we will hold a special Superhero Training Camp that begins at 11 a.m.

 There's a copy of the calendar posted in the Summer Reading Program section under the Events & Classes tab above, or you can stop by the Library for your copy.

We have a strong lineup of activities this Summer and hope you will join us as we have fun encouraging the children of Elbert County to retain their academic skills by reading. Give the Library a call at 706-283-5375 if you have any questions. 



July 1 is Zombie Night!

We have a special treat planned for folks who enjoy watching the Walking Dead television show.  On Wednesday, July 1, we will host one of the show's zombies at the Elberton Arts Center.  The program begins at 7 p.m. 

Zombie Chris will be talking about his experiences working on Walking Dead and how he became a zombie.  Attendees will also have a chance to make themselves up and then take selfies. 

Zombie Chris will not be in costume for this session, but he will have photos available for sale for $10 each. 

Plan now to join us for an entertaining evening.  The Elberton Arts Center is located just behind the Elbert Theatre at 17 W. Church St. here in Elberton.  See you there!

Management Changes

Beginning July 1, 2015, Janet Burroughs has been named Interim Director of the Elbert County Public Library, and current Director Anne Grace will move to a newly created part-time Assistant Director position.  These changes are in anticipation of Ms. Grace's projected December retirement.  Ms. Burroughs has been with Elbert County for 5.5 years and was with Athens Regional Library System for more than 20 years, so she brings a strong background to this position. 

The Library Board will begin a search for a permanent Director in August.
