Fulton Families - District 5

In association with the exhibition 'Pride, Dignity and Togetherness: The Legacy of Tom Dorsey' at Southwest Arts Center Gallery, Fulton County Arts and Culture presents Fulton Families.

Dorsey's images capture moments in time; the pride and positive potential of his subjects. We believe in the enormous potential of our family, the geographically and culturally diverse community of Fulton County. Through six events across the 6 County districts, we want to build relationships, share stories, and engage Fulton County residents through this initiative, thus providing all residents an opportunity to be culturally enriched.

The event is open to all, but we hope to focus on Fulton County residents from District 5. Please book a ticket to secure your spot, walk-ins are welcome, but we cannot guarantee that your photo will be taken.

Thank you so much for all that you do for the library. Happy Thanksgiving to all of our amazing Friends!😀
An amazing experience presenting my Filmmaking 101 for Teens Workshop at this branch!
Heard that there is some construction planned for the library - the stated reason for moving the polling place for the May 22nd primary elections to the Butler Street Baptist Church. Can you share with us what the construction is for and how long the library will be closed? Thanks!
So very disappointed in your event with the GA Mobile Dairy Classroom. This is so harmful to the community, the animals, our environment and our health. There is NOTHING educational about this event, it is complete lies. Please research the harmful disease causing attributes of dairy and reconsider this event.
RE: Georgia Mobile Dairy--It's unfortunate that the library would mis-educate kids. Like all mammals, cows only produce breast milk after getting pregnant. In this case, through forced impregnation. Their babies are taken from them (usually immediately), with the girls beginning the horrific process soon, and the boys (useless byproducts) killed immediately, or kept confined then killed as babies for veal. The mothers and babies cry for each other. Then at age 3-4, exhausted and useless, the cows are sent to slaughter. A normal cow will live to age 20-30. Further, cow's milk is clearly shown to increase risk of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. This is not in dispute (Except of course by the dairy industry, though multiple unbiased studues have clearly proven the link.) Slaughter house workers have five times the rate of injury and amputation with poor healthcare. They are also more likely to abuse their spouses due to the desensitization to violence. Most milk comes from CAFOs--which preferentially are near poor black and poor Hispanic communities, where the f***s and urine leaks into the water supply or us sprayed on local farms. People who live near or work on CAFOs have increased rates of respiratory illness and drug resistant infections. That's environmental racism. Animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of greenhouse gas emissions. It uses more water and destroys more land daily than any other industry. It is the least efficient way to feed people--taking up to 16-20lbs more grain to produce one pound if food than if we just used the grain to feed people. A recent study showed that eliminating animal products from the American diet would allow us to feed every American--plus an additional 390 million people. Why on earth would you promote such death and misery? Why not contact an animal sanctuary to teach kids about environmental stewardship and healthy eating? There are wonderful sanctuaries in the Atlanta area that teach compassion for animals, the planet, and our communities. This is a shockingly bad idea for such a progressive library.
"Come learn with us about healthy soil and soil testing"
We had a great time today at the Drag Queen story time! My littles got way more out or if than just stories! The were able to hear about celebrating who they are. We hope this will be a regular event with Miss Terra Cotta Sugarbaker!
