The Athens-Clarke Co. Library hosts about 600,000 visits a year, including over 30,000 visits by children. Many teens and pre-teens, especially those without other after-school or childcare options, walk to the library from nearby middle, high, and elementary schools. The ACC Library VISTA will continue to support positive youth development and education for teens and pre-teens in the Athens-Clarke Co. community by enhancing partnerships, leveraging resources, and developing materials to provide cultural, educational, and enrichment programming and activities at the library.
