It’s been a bit, but we’ve been in full swing at the library. With Summer Reading, Back to School, and more, it’s been a little crazy, but a whole lot of fun at the Jackson-Butts County Public Library.
We have a few updates and upcoming events to share with you.
First, the library hours have recently changed. We are now open until 8p on Tuesdays and Thursdays only! Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, we are open until 6p.
Second, our Family Craft Nights are returning! Our first one will be held in the later part of August (date still to be decided). We will let everyone know, both here and on our facebook page (click here for our Facebook page).
Third, we are in the process of planning several more programs for the upcoming solar eclipse. We will have at least two more (one for the general public and one aimed primarily for the younger ones). When we have firm dates, we will let you know. We are still waiting to hear back from the program organizers.
For those who have heard rumors, yes, we do have solar eclipse viewing glasses. We will be handing them out only at programs and the week leading up to the eclipse. We are trying to encourage everyone to come to at least one of the programs, and we only have a limited supply of the glasses. So, please, make sure to check out our programs! And you may get enough for your household, but we ask that you only take what you really need. This will allow us to provide glasses to as many people as possible. If you have any questions about the solar eclipse programs, feel free to call the library (770-775-7524) or message us on Facebook.
Summer Readers: don’t forget, you can pick up your reading certificates at the library anytime. Also, don’t forget to log your hours and come claim your prizes! They are all here at the library!
