Children's Programming


Preschool story time introduces 0-6 year olds to books and reading through songs, stories, and crafts. Parents and caregivers need to stay in the room with the child. Storytime, which lasts approximately 30-45 minutes, is an excellent opportunity to introduce children to the library and to the joy of reading. It is a great way to enjoy read-aloud stories, sing songs, discover new books and make great friends!    

Reading Across the County

The Cornelia Library values their relationship with Habersham County Schools, day cares and preschools in educating the youth of this county. The Cornelia Library provides an outreach program to educate children in Habersham County about their local libraries including reading a book and doing a craft with the children. This program is offered to all schools, day cares and preschools in Habersham County. Our goal is to foster a
love of reading for future generations. To schedule a program, please contact the library.

Georgia State Park Passes & Backpacks

Press Release

Beginning the weekend of Sept. 30, Georgia residents will be able to check out a  stuffed backpack kit at any of the state’s 400-plus public libraries and, in  combination with an already available state ParkPass, take it with them on a  free visit to any of Georgia’s State Parks & Historic Sites.   Each co-branded kit  includes a sturdy, five-pocket backpack containing a pair of 5x30 binoculars, a  guide to Georgia’s State Parks & Historic Sites and foldout Pocket  Naturalist Guides to Georgia Wildlife, Georgia Birds and Georgia Trees &  Wildflowers.   The kits are the latest  additions to the popular ParkPass library loan program, which will celebrate its  10-year anniversary in the coming year. More than 100,000 families have checked  out and used a ParkPass since Georgia Public Library Service and Georgia State  Parks & Historic Sites began the program, which has saved residents more  than $1 million in admissions and parking fees.   “Our goal for these  backpack kits is to help families learn about nature and the natural wonders we  have throughout the state,” said State Librarian Julie Walker, “and this  objective aligns well with the important role that libraries play in education  for all Georgians. From backyards and local parks to any — or all — of Georgia’s  state parks, historic sites and National Park Service lands, the learning  opportunities here are endless.”   The loan period for the  backpack kits is one week, matching that of the ParkPasses, which must be  checked out separately.   This project is made  possible, in part, with funds provided by a grant to GPLS from the Institute of  Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through the Library Services and Technology  Act (LSTA).
