Happy September first. The theme for the City Daily Photo community this month is "libraries." What a great theme. Greensboro has such great public libraries, we could publish a photo a day for a month about our libraries and still not do them justice. Our main library downtown and the seven branch libraries are dynamic and engaging places. The above photo was taken at the Kathleen Clay Edwards Family Branch off of Hobbs Road. This branch is located beside the nearly one-hundred acre Price Park.It was getting close to 8pm when we arrived to take a photo, so the above children's section was pretty empty. However, the study rooms had users and the computers were also being put to good use. People were still arriving, as seen in the thumbnail below.
Our libraries offer so many special services for adults and children and are a wealth of resources. Here is an example of a few upcoming events at Kathleen Clay Edwards in September: 1) learning about plants along North Carolina's roadsides; 2) learning about chimney swifts; 3) a learn to fish session at nearby Lake Higgins; 4) a tiny house tour; 5) a family night hike; 6) a CEU credit opportunity for teachers to learn about using science-based storybooks. Libraries events are free and open to the public. If you haven't been to a library in awhile, you should treat yourself to a visit. To see libraries from around the world, visit the City Daily Photo Theme Day portal, here. There are some beauties. See a couple more shots of Kathleen Clay, below.
