DW – Witness to the Holocaust

Dalton-Whitfield Library will be hosting “Witness to the Holocaust”: Thursday, February 13th – Thursday, February 27th

This event is free and open to the public.

Come see the display at the library and learn about William Alexander “W.A” Scott III and his time as a photographer in a segregated battalion during World War II. W.A. was a Georgia resident and a civil rights activist. The exhibit is sponsored by The Georgia Commission on the Holocaust with the Georgia Public Library Service and also looks at the similarities between racial laws in the United States and in Germany.

The panels that will be on display are a part of a larger, permanent exhibit called Anne Frank in the World: 1929-1945 in Sandy Springs, Georgia.

RINGLING BROS. AND BARNUM & BAILEY CLOWNS TAKE READING SERIOUSLY AT CHATSWORTH-MURRAY COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY

CHATSWORTH, GA (January 15, 2014) —

Want to learn what it takes to soar on the flying trapeze or just what goes into those cream pies that the clowns throw? Then join Rob Ringling, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Ambassador of Laughter, for some serious fun on January 15. 2014 at CHATSWORTH-MURRAY COUNTY LIBRARY located at 706 Old Dalton-Ellijay Road, Chatsworth, Georgia.

He is no class clown, but is certain to add amusement to a special 30-minute circus storytime, which will encourage children not only to read, but also to discover, dream and learn! The library event is free and open to the public. For more information on the additional libraries the clowns plan to visit, go to www.ReadingwithRingling.com.

Rob, the Ambassador of Laughter, will be in town to help kick-off “Reading with Ringling Bros.!” The library reading program is easy and fun for kids to participate. The best part is that kids can earn a free circus ticket by simply doing their library reading! Children from ages 2-12 enroll with the librarian, who will give kids everything to start their library reading. For more information, visit www.ReadingwithRingling.com.
