Dig into history with ArchaeoBus

Georgia’s Mobile Archaeology Classroom will visit the A. Mitchell Powell Jr. Library in Newnan and the Central Library in east Coweta next week — part of the 2013 Coweta Public Library System’s Summer Reading Program.

The ArchaeoBus, the Society for Georgia Archaeology’s mobile classroom, is visiting the Coweta Public Library System on May 30.

The ArchaeoBus’ first stop will be the A. Mitchell Powell Jr. branch from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. followed by a visit to the Central Library on Literary Lane at 2 p.m. 

The ArchaeoBus is free and open to the public; no registration is required.

Visitors will have a unique opportunity to learn about Georgia’s past through an interactive exhibit, touring the bus, viewing artifacts, learning about the science and the art of archaeology, and playing a variety of games – all designed to encourage guests to learn and preserve Georgia’s past.

The ArchaeoBus joins That Puppet Guy, Lee Bryan; comedic Juggler, Todd Key; and Grassroots Musicians, John and Lalla McGee in kicking off the Coweta Public Library System’s 2013 Summer Reading Program. 

For more information on the CPLS’ Summer Reading Program or to register, call any CPLS branch or visit online at www.cowetapubliclibrary.org.
