Welcome to our libraries' summer spot...

This year your libraries in Franklin & Fulton Counties will be handling our summer differently.  Instead of hosting programs in our buildings, we will have videos on Facebook and YouTube, suggestions for activities to do as a family, access to reading online, all from this website.

The other book I mention in the introduction is:
The Serpent Slayer and Other Stories of Strong Women

Join us on Fridays for Teen Story Share, where Miss Gina shares a variety of reading material that is fun for teens, including short stories, excerpts from longer books, and graphic novels.

Access videos at ahmfl.org, on our YouTube channel, or through our Facebook, or Instagram.

Have you ever wondered if there was a better way to save Sleeping Beauty than hacking through tons of thorns?
For our next STEAM challenge for kids we offer a different solution--building your own catapult and flying in! In today's video, STEAMers will learn how to construct their own catapults AND build an easy castle to attack!

This week, ALL of the supplies you'll need can be found in our kids STEAM kits, available for FREE during the Alexander Hamilton Library's curbside pickup hours (M-F 4-6pm, Sat. 9:30-11:30am). No reservations necessary, while supplies last.
