Looking for adventure? Look no further than your local public library, states Nicholson Public Library manager Rhonda O'Keeffe.

"Behind our magical doors, a bounty of adventure, knowledge, and fun await you," she said. "Books, DVD’s, and public access computers can access e-books, e-audiobooks, e-magazines, World Book, ABC Mouse, and Mango Languages. We even have partnerships with some of the hottest educational venues in Georgia. The Michael C. Carlos Museum is one of the premier museums in the Southeast. The museum houses one of the comprehensive collections of artwork from ancient Egypt, Nubia, the Near East, Greece, Rome, the Americas, Africa, and Asia. Patrons can check out the Michael C. Carlos Museum pass free with their PINES library card. Up to six people can discover these cultural treasures. Stop by today and sign up for your library card and begin your journey!"

September is Library Card Sign-Up month at the library. Every new patron that signs up at the Nicholson Public Library will be entered in our drawing for a canvas Piedmont Regional Library System messenger bag filled with goodies.

"While visiting our library don’t forget to pick up one of our weekly take and make crafts," O'Keeffe said. "Children can also participate in a scavenger hunt to find book characters hidden around the library. Each child that finds all seven characters can visit our treasure box!"


There is also an adult book club offered.

O'Keeffe said, "Discover new books and authors monthly at NPL! Join our Hidden Gems Book Club for adults, each month we will meet on the third Thursday of the month. Our next club meeting is Thursday, October 21, at 1:30 p.m. This month’s selection is “Into the Abyss”. Books are available at the circulation desk for check out."

Monday’s at 11:30 a.m. are story time at the Nicholson Public Library Annex. The annex is located at the Benton Center. Join Lady Sherri for songs, a story, and a craft.
