Carnegie Library announces collaboration


From Special Reports

The Newnan Carnegie Library has announced a new community collaboration with the Coweta County African American Museum/Farmer Street Cemetery and the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society. This collaboration will include community partnerships in programming and events.

On Dec. 14th, the Newnan Carnegie Library released its first two projects. – a holiday video and a call to decorate establishments to commemorate the collaboration.

The Carnegie has produced a holiday video talking about the history and traditions of Hannukah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa. This video is now available on social media.

The Carnegie is also asking the local community to help them decorate establishments to celebrate this collaboration. Stop by the Carnegie this week and pick up the grab-and-go kits. Three crafts are available the public and their families to enjoy making: one to keep and two to bring back to the Carnegie so they can all decorate their windows for the holiday season.

“We are really looking forward to partnering with the NCHS and the African American Museum,” says Carnegie Director Susan Crutchfield. “Community collaboration is very important to Carnegie’s mission, and these two organizations are a real asset to Newnan. We look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together.”

“The Newnan-Coweta Historical Society is so excited and honored to partner with such wonderful organizations,” said NCHS Director Emily Kimbell. “Coweta County is such a rich community with diverse stories and backgrounds, and we are so pleased to be working with the Carnegie Library and African-American Heritage Museum in order to share the stories of all our community members! Especially during this year, we are happy to have the opportunity to work together to spread some holiday hope and cheer!”
