Classic City Rollergirls at the Athens-Clarke County Library!

You never know who you'll meet at the library! The Classic City Rollergirls recently stopped by so we could take their picture for a READ poster. While here, they visited the Young Adult and Children's areas, browsed our Banned Books display, and rolled through Reference. Keep watching to the end for a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot, and stay tuned for more "Reimagine Your Library" fun!

And the next time you see a Rollergirl, ask her about her favorite book! :-)
