Library to Receive Donated Materials from Georgia Public Broadcasting

The library’s collection of DVDs for children and adults is growing, thanks to a generous donation from Georgia Public Broadcasting.

Salsa:Award-Winning Language Program

Each branch will receive sets of the Salsa award-winning TV series, which was designed by leading language and early childhood experts to present Spanish language and culture to children in a fun and engaging way.

Salsa I is a set of eight DVDs containing 30 lessons altogether. Salsa II is a set of four DVDs containing twelve lessons.

Young learners in kindergarten through third grade will enjoy Salsa the salamander and his puppet friends, who teach Spanish through familiar stories, sparkling animation, songs, and real life adventures.

All of the Salsa DVDs will be housed in the Easy Language Learning collection.

Official Amphibians: The Green Tree Frog

The Green Tree Frog: How a Bill Becomes a Law is a one-disc animated short film inspired by the true story of how a Georgia fourth grade class proposed that the green tree frog become the Georgia State Amphibian.

This DVD will be housed in the Juvenile DVD collection at each branch.

History: The Georgia Stories

The Georgia Stories is a two-part series regarding the history of the state told through archival film and photographs, interviews with Georgia residents, historians, and authors, documentary footage, and dramatic recreation of events.

Georgia Stories I contains stories about Georgia’s political and cultural history. Georgia Stories II contains stories about Georgia’s economic history.

The Georgia Stories will be housed in the Adult DVD collection.
