Free Fun: Library Events

Cobb County Library

Local libraries do so much more than story times, and all the programming is free! Crafts, gaming days, celebrations, and hands-on workshops make a visit to a nearby branch an exciting experience beyond book check-out. Here are a few you’ll want to know about in October:
