My New South crew and I went out on another adventure on Wednesday, July 17th! We got to go visit the fabulous kids at the Clayton County Headquarters and Fairview Libraries! First we headed over to the Clayton County Headquarters Library, where I found out that some scenes from Gone With the Wind were filmed. I got archaeGooosebumps!

The wonderful librarians set us up in a nice spot in the shade, which made it great for the kids to come out and play some of our outdoor activities! One child even found a new use for some of our furs!

Of course the kids had a great time playing around with the games inside as well! They were all over answering some tough archaeological true/false questions, and seeing how an archaeologist sees things.

Next up, we drove over to the Fairview Library in Henry County. One of the original settlers in Henry County was Jesse Johnson, who was the great-grandfather of Lyndon Johnson, the 35th President of the United States of America. It was a scorcher of an afternoon, but the kids were beating the heat to come out and have some fun with archaeology!

The kids really enjoyed reading all of the information I brought with me on the bus! I guess that makes sense, seeing how we met them at a library!

We had so much fun out at these two fantastic libraries! Only 3 more to go to wrap up my summer library tour!
