Enjoy Teen-tober

Week 1: Piece it Together (literacy) October 4th-9th
We’ll have popular YA book cover puzzles to work on in the teen area to play with.

Week 2: Caption This and Compliment Box (writing) October 11th-16th
We’ll have wacky photos on poster boards that teens (and adults) can add sticky note captions to. There will be a new picture for every day of the week.

Compliment Box: We will be rolling our our “take a compliment, leave a compliment” boxes.  Feel free to take a compliment, and write one or more on the index cards provided to brighten someone’s day!

Week 3: Unplugged Coding (technology) October 18th-23rd
Work through computational thinking to “code” a monster with paper and markers. These are self-guided projects you can find in the teen area this week.

Week 4: Window Painting and Flextangles (art) October 25th-30th
What better way to invite teens than to have them decorate? We will have washable window markers to help decorate the windows in the teen area.  We will also have flextangles, 3-D shapes to color and fold to help decorate.

Libraries are open for visits, and still offer curbside service.

We still offer curbside service to bring items out to you at the door or your vehicle; place holds by searching the catalog with your account, or call ahead to your local library. Our Wi-Fi is accessible 24/7 so that you can get on the internet from your devices even when we are closed.

Meeting rooms are closed at this time.

All library meeting rooms are CLOSED to public use, due to COVID positivity
rate increases in Elbert County.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

At this time, library programs will be allowed in the main part of the libraries and outdoors.

Our New Website is live!

We hope you enjoy the new look.  More content coming weekly as we migrate our data, links, and more!  Updated 10/12/21
