I’ve been busy, y’all! On Tuesday, June 18th, I rode over to the Stonecrest Library. Librarian Amanda Lindsay showed us their recently built library, and gosh was it amazing! Of course, the building wasn’t all that was amazing about the Stonecrest Library…. I am talking about the fabulous kids, of course!

The Stonecrest Library is located in Lithonia, and Lithonia actually means “city/town of stone.” The name makes sense! The children had a rock solid will to learn, and they really had a great time with me, and my New South crew!

The next day, we visited the Tucker–Reid H. Cofer Library. Tucker used to be just a railroad stop, but I guess a lot of people decided to stop there, because it is bustlin’ with folks now!

Tucker is a young up-and-coming city, just like the wonderful kids that we met on our visit out! The kids and parents were a ton of fun and really enjoyed learning what archaeology is all about! What a great place, with some pretty fantastic people!!!
