AMERICAN CORNERS

Bringing America to Georgia

American Corners are small, American-style community centers located in libraries and other public spaces.  They operate through joint partnerships to promote cooperation and understanding between the people of the United States and Georgia by providing accurate information about the U.S.  Access to American Corners and their collections are free and open to all interested Georgians of all ages.

Major programs and regular activities at all American Corners include American speakers, American movie screenings, English language classes, storytelling and book clubs, debate and discussion clubs, MakerSpace activities and U.S. holiday celebrations.
