Well Friday, June 14th, was a big one folks! I got to head on out to Gwinnett County to visit two wonderful libraries!

First, I went out to pay a visit to the wonderful librarians at the Dacula Public Library. It was such a gorgeous day, and the children were out in full force to soak up some archaeo-knowledge. Kids of all ages came out and it was great to see them having so much fun in the sun!

Dacula is home to the oldest buildings in the metropolitan Atlanta area, and it was great to be around such rich history. Dacula is also home to some pretty intelligent kids as well! Me and my New South crew had a great time, playing all of the fun and interactive activities that I brought along for the kiddos!

Next, we drove over to the Five Forks Public Library. The heat was turning up so we moved some of my off-the-bus activities inside, to keep everyone cool. What a turn-out we had! And, all the librarians were so helpful with keeping everything organized and making sure that everyone got to get the full archaeological experience.

All-in-all, we had over 300 kids come out through the entirety of the day, which left me exhausted, but feeling extremely fulfilled. It was great to see so many kids and parents coming out to learn about the wonderful world of archaeology!
