Holiday Giving Program Underway

This year's Holiday Giving Program has begun, and we are again asking everyone in the community to support the Library with a tax-deductible donation.

The suggested donation is $30, but many folks write checks for larger amounts.  Donors will receive a special Elberton bookmark and complimentary membership in the Friends of the Elbert County Library. 

Monies from this fund-raiser are used for materials (e-books, children's books, adult fiction and bestsellers) and for programs like our crafts classes for all ages and Lego Robotics programs. 

Please consider making a deduction to the Elbert County Public Library this year.  You can bring a check by or put one in the mail at this address:  Elbert County Public Library, 345 Heard St., Elberton, GA  30635.  Thanks so much!  For more information, please call 706-283-5375.

Free Online Language Classes

Now Available Through Galileo

Have you ever wanted to brush up on or learn a foreign language? Georgia's Virtual Library now includes Mango Languages, a great way to learn a language by studying online at home. 

The link to Mango is:

The Mango programs use a unique blend of innovative electronic techniques that include film-based language, and a culture learning system. Phonetic pop-ups help suers sound out even the scariest-looking words in the new language. 

The system shows users the relationship between words in their native and the new language with color coding.  It is organized, practical, and actually works. 

For more information, give us a call at the Library --  706-283-5375.
