Welcome to the teen site for ECGRL.  The fifteen libraries in five counties and the Talking Book Center of the East Central Georgia Regional Library serve a population of almost 300,000, with over half a million items. All of our libraries are equipped with computer access to our catalog, and all have public-use computers for Internet access and office applications. Our friendly staff makes customer service a priority. We encourage you to visit us …. because we are here for you.

My name is Kristin Eberhart (Ms. Kris).  I am the new Young Adult (YA) Librarian at the Augusta Public Library and the moderator of the ECGRL Teen Blog.  While I am a recent graduate of the Valdosta State University MLIS (Masters in Library & Information Science) program, I have over 15 years of experience in Georgia libraries, primarily in the Atlanta area.  I am the parent of a college sophomore studying dance, so I am accutely aware of the issues facing not only today’s often-overwhelmed and over-scheduled youth, but the concerned adults responsible for their care and nurturing.  New to Augusta, I enjoy the city immensely, have been greeted with warmth and kindness by all I’ve met and look forward to doing great things with the exceptional young people living throughout the CSRA, especially our valued patrons of the ECGRL system.

Feel free to drop me a line at ya@ecgrl.org or 706-821-2615 if you have any questions, comments and/or suggestions for YA programming or book purchases.  I’m looking forward to hearing from you all.
