Have you ever thought about joining a Book Club? We have a Book Club at the library which meets monthly. Our December meeting, which is Tuesday, December 17, at 7 p.m., is when we choose the books we are going to read in 2020. We all bring finger foods for a little Christmas cheer. We nominate books to read for next year and then the whole group votes for the top 11 books (we don’t have a discussion in December). Anyone intere...

The Friends of the Library are now selling our new pewter Christmas ornaments.

We have extras of all 14 ornaments as well. We only have five complete sets for...

It’s not exaggerating to say we had another very successful Trick or Treat at the library and on the square, in spite of the weather not cooperating. It turns out the weather was not that bad although it looked cloudy and threatening. We think we had well over 1,000 people go through. I think everyone enjoyed our Star Wars theme.

There will be a free seminar called "Living Free" at the library on Tuesday, November 12, and Tuesd...

He left Chattooga to be the head of GEMA (Georgia Emergency Management Agency) under Governors Zell Miller and Roy Barnes, and he supervised the security for t...
