New Teen and Tween Club

We are starting up a brand new program for teens and tweens with help from homeschool parent, Heidi Tingelhoff. Teen and Tween Club is just for teens and tweens. We are looking for their input on activities with an emphasis on building friendships and Camaraderie. Parents, you are welcome to leave your older kids and spend some quality time with the younger kids in or outside the library! We will have plenty of parents on hand supervising.

Please join us Monday, February 13th at 2pm for card and board games. Bring your best ideas for future programs!

Through the partnership’s Family Pass loan program families can visit the museum for free. Individuals and families with a valid Georgia library card can now check out a Family Pass to the Carlos Museum for six people at more than 400 participating libraries across all 159 Georgia counties.

Carlos Museum for families
Programs for children and families at the Carlos Museum provide opportunities for children and teens to learn from artists of the ancient world in the galleries and from some of Atlanta’s best practicing artists in the studio. Check out our special family events, programs for teens, Artful Stories, and so many more inspiring, educational, and creative offerings here.

More on the partnership

This partnership also includes programs at several Georgia public libraries each year and an eight-panel touring photographic exhibition, Discover the Stories of Civilization: Stories of Beauty, Power, Love, Glory and Faith, that opened in Leesburg at the Lee County Library on September 30. Plans call for Discover the Stories of Civilization to visit more than a dozen public library systems around the state in coming months, including the Moultrie-Colquitt County Library in late October and the Thomas County Public Library in mid-November.
