Summer Reading Activities End July 31

Summer Reading at Elbert County Library will end Friday, July 31 with a great program on Super Hero Villains at 10:30 a.m.

On Monday, July 27 we will hold the annual Stomp Rocket contest beginning at 3 p.m.  Participants will construct a paper rocket and then see just how far it can fly.  Come on over and enjoy the fun!

It's been a great summer filled with heroic activities ranging from Story Time programs to Electronic Legos, cake decorating, Water World and the Super Hero Training Camp.  Thanks to all who have helped to make this year's very-full schedule  possible.

We will be planning more children's events on days when school is out this Fall, so check back here or by calling 706-283-5375 for more information as it becomes available. 



Coming Soon! Harper Lee Program

We have a special treat planned for folks who are now reading or have just finished the new Harper Lee novel, Go Set a Watchman.  Elbert County's own Ann Eckler will present a program discussing this book and Ms. Lee's other classic, To Kill a Mockingbird.  The date hasn't been finalized yet, so keep watch here for more details.  We expect to set the date very shortly.

Ms. Eckler has presented a number of programs on Mockingbird and is a retired Elbert County English teacher.  She has taught the book many times and is very knowledgeable about Ms. Lee's writing.  Make plans now to join us for this enjoyable evening!

Free Online Language Classes

Now Available Through Galileo

Have you ever wanted to bruch 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.

Start the School Year Off Right!

Just as your child needs school supplies, new clothes and a book bag, he or she also needs a library card! The great part is that it doesn't cost a thing, and this is one item that can really help assure success in school. 

If your child is under 18, the custodial parent or legal gardian must complete the card application, since the parent/guardian is the one responsible for any fines, lost materials or inappropriate Internet use. 

Just what can a library card be used for?  With a PINES library card from Elbert County, the holder has access to books in Elberton, Bowman and from the state, as well as audio materials, DVD's, magazines, e-books and audio downloads, and use of the Library's public access computers.  Because PINES covers much of the state of Georgia, this card can be used at any other PINES location in Georgia.
