Farm Day was held at the Banks County Public Library on Saturday, July 29, featuring the Georgia Ag Experience Classroom.

More than 100 area youth attended the Farm Day, which was held in the parking lot of Banks County Elementary School. The event was planned by public library manager Stacy Krumnow, who obtained a grant for the program.

The Georgia Farm Bureau's Georgia Ag Experience Classroom was at the Farm Day. Students were able to tour the mobile classroom and check out the interactive displays.
