New York Times Obituary

Cornelia Bailey of Hog Hammock died on Sunday, October 15th after a long illness. She was the matriarch of the families on Sapelo Island, an activist, and a storyteller. She was loved by all who met her. Our condolences go out to the community and families. We will all miss her influence in the community.

 

 

Clifford the Big Red Dog will be stopping by some of our libraries in November!  Come say hi to Clifford and take a picture with him after a Clifford-themed storytime! 

Join us for “Reading with Rescue Rabbits” in October and November when Alice from Alice in Wonderland and some real rescue rabbits from the Golden Isles House Rabbit Society visit some of our libraries for a special storytime! 

Families can check out stuffed backpacks at Georgia public libraries!

Beginning the weekend of Sept. 30, Georgia residents will be able to check out a stuffed backpack kit at any of the state’s 400-plus public libraries and, in combination with an already available state ParkPass, take it with them on a free visit to any of Georgia’s State Parks & Historic Sites.  Each co-branded kit includes a sturdy, five-pocket backpack containing a pair of 5×30 binoculars, a guide to Georgia’s State Parks & Historic Sites and foldout Pocket Naturalist Guides to Georgia Wildlife, Georgia Birds and Georgia Trees & Wildflowers.

The kits are the latest additions to the popular ParkPass library loan program, which will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in the coming year. More than 100,000 families have checked out and used a ParkPass since Georgia Public Library Service and Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites began the program, which has saved residents more than $1 million in admissions and parking fees.

The loan period for the backpack kits is one week, matching that of the ParkPasses, which must be checked out separately.
