CG – Throwback Tuesday for Teens

Calhoun-Gordon County Library presents: Throwback Tuesday for Teens on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 from 4:00pm-5:30pm

The Calhoun-Gordon County Library, in partnership with our Friends of the Library, received a grant from NEGMC this last year to make fleece blankets for the foster children of Gordon County. We are still working on this project and have plenty of fleece to turn into blankets. This is an excellent opportunity to give back to your community. Come on these Throwback days and participate in this activity. Winter will be here soon and we do not want any child to be left out in the cold.
