Bookmobile Offers Services to Homebound Readers

Unlike many library systems, Elbert County Library still provides monthly outreach services to homebound folks, daycare centers and healthcare facilities throughout the county.  The bookmobile delivers on Wednesdays along three separate routes. If you know of someone who is unable to get to the Library and would like books, magazines, or paperbacks delivered to them, give us a call at 706-283-5735. 

 

 

Home Run Reader Rewards Can Be Redeemed Through September

Even though Summer Reading ends when school starts, school age children can still earn a ticket to a Braves game through September. Here's how this offer works:

Read a book on sports or sportsmanship and then go to www.braves.com/reading.  Register online, tell them about the book you have read, print out the certificate, and bring it to the Library where we will add a special code.  Then you can go back to the website and order your free ticket. You must order your tickets well before the game -- at least 7 days -- because it takes Ticketmaster that long to get the ticket to you.

The Atlanta Hawks free ticket promotion will end August 30.  Go to this website to register and request a ticket. www.checkitoutreading.com  Children in grades K-12 may register to earn a free ticket to a Hawks game by reading 5 books.

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

Computer Coaching Available

The Library offers one-on-one computer coaching sessions to anyone who needs a little help using the computer.  We have found these sessions more effective than group classes since they provide individualized attention that is often needed.  We also offer help in resume writing. To set up a session, call the Library at 706-283-5375.

Legos at the Library Returns in September

Third Thursdays 4 p.m.

Now that school has started, the weekly Lego's session will become monthly sessions beginning on September 18 and the time has changed to 4 p.m. Come join us as we spend  time building with Legos! We have the bricks -- all you need to do is drop by for an hour of construction fun. Give us a call at 706-283-5375 if you have questions.
