 About Us

Hart County Library is a Georgia PINES Library. Georgia Library Public Information Network for Electronic Services, or PINES, is Georgia's public library automation and lending network for 249 libraries in 127 counties. PINES is an initiative of the Georgia Public Library Service, a unit of the University System of Georgia. Fifty percent of Georgia's population and 44 of Georgia's 58 public library systems rely on the PINES network for their library service. PINES creates a statewide "borderless library" that eliminates geographic and socio-economic barriers and provides equal access to information for all Georgians. Georgians with a PINES library card have access to materials beyond what is available on their local shelves and enjoy the benefits of a shared collection of 7.7 million books and materials that can be delivered to their home library with no charge to the library user that contributes to a more educated Georgia through lifelong learning.

Hart County Library also gives you access to GALILEO. GALILEO stands for GeorgiA LIbrary LEarning Online, an initiative of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.

Book is “Golden Boy” by Tara Sullivan.

There will be a Book discussion at 6 pm and Skype with the author at 7pm.

Born albino in a Tanzanian village, Habo suffers virulent prejudice for his pale skin, blue eyes, and yellow hair, even from his own family. At 13, he runs away to the city of Dar-es-Salaam, where he thinks he will find more acceptance: there are even two albino members of the government there.

He finds a home as an apprentice to a blind sculptor who knows Habo is a smart boy with a good heart, and he teaches Habo to carve wood. But Habo is being pursued by a poacher who wants to kill him and sell his body parts on the black market to superstitious buyers in search of luck. Readers will be caught by the contemporary story of prejudice, both unspoken and violent, as tension builds to the climax.
