It's hard to believe we are almost half way through October. Don't worry - we have some great programs planned for the rest of the month that you will not want to miss! It's fall break for most, so this is an excellent time to visit the Carnegie to borrow books, movies, attend a program, or check out one of our park or museum passes. We have passes to the Georgia State Parks, Chattahoochee Nature Center, Macon Museums, the William Bremen Jewish Heritage Museum, and Zoo Atlanta. All passes except Zoo Atlanta can be checked out using our library card and are first come, first serve. For Zoo Atlanta, you must watch a 30 minute movie at the library to receive your pass. Only two Zoo Atlanta passes are given each day. Please call 770-683-1347 to check availability or for more information.

Sunday

NCLF Presents: Avary Hack Doubleday, "Daughter of Dawn": 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Join the Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation as they host author/memoirist Avary Hack Doubleday. She will present her new book, "Daughter of the Dawn", on her childhood spent on Hilton Head Island circa 1950-1956 .

"Daughter of the Dawn" takes you to a remote island—not so long ago—where, as barefoot children, Avary and her brothers played in the creek, searched for deer and alligator eyes reflected in the dark, collected shells on deserted beaches, and watched loggerhead sea turtles as they deposited their rubbery eggs in the dunes. Through a child’s eyes, she describes private hunting clubs on the Island, evacuating for a hurricane, and lessons learned in a one-room school. As Avary paints her memories she reveals the characters of her parents which led them to this adventure and which molded her own character as she grew up at the dawn of modern Island development…

Join us as we go back to the island of yesteryear! Registration is requested and can be done by visiting https://www.eventbrite.com/e/avary-doubleday-daughter-of-the-dawn-tickets-73977804605. Doors open at 1:45 p.m. with a book signing to follow. For more information please visit http://newnanclf.com/.
