Family Fun Courtesy of the Library
Libraries have more than books to check out. Take a look at some of the offerings of libraries around Marietta.
If you aren’t a regular patron of Cobb County Libraries, you probably think it offers little more than checking out books. That’s far from the truth; Cobb libraries have wonderful, educational and fun activities for every age group.
Film making for teenagers and free family movie matinees are ongoing events at the library. Also, February celebrates Black History Month and Cobb County Libraries have great activities for the entire family designed to educate and entertain. Put the following activities on your calendar; they are great escapes on a cold, wintry weekend. Go to www.cobbcat.org for complete details.
