The Philadelphia Brass was formed in 1988 by professional musicians from Eastern Pennsylvania to pursue their common goal: performing the best of brass quintet literature of all periods and styles. They have collaborated in performances with bands, choruses, organists and dancers, as well as performed educational programs for grade-school children, college students, and adults of all ages. Critics and the public alike have enthusiastically praised the appealing diversity of repertoire, technical virtuosity as well as humorous, informative educational programs. The ensemble’s performance has been praised as “artistry of the highest caliber” and “dazzling technique” by presenters. Its master classes have been called “excellent and sensitively handled”. One of the unique strengths of Philadelphia Brass is the palpable sense of respect, affection and musical enjoyment among its members.

Please join the Grantville Branch Library staff for the following programs:


Wednesday, September 28th @ 9am

Morning Fit Walk (all ages) Are you ready to start walking and don’t know where to begin? We’ll lead the way. Walking is one of the easiest, most enjoyable, and most profitable forms of exercise. All you need is a good pair of shoes, comfortable clothing, and desire. You are invited out every morning to start your day off with a brisk morning walk in order to get their circulation going. Don’t miss out!


Thursday, September 29th @ 6pm

Zumba Fitness @ the Library! (ages 15 and up) Zumba is a “feel-happy” workout that is great for both the body and the mind!!! It’s fun and effective, using interval training combining fast and slow Latin and international rhythms for an effective aerobic workout while targeting your legs, abs, gluts and arms. Don’t be a wall flower, join the fun with Ms. Misha as we get fit and have a great time at the Grantville Branch Library! REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.


Saturday, October 1st @12:30pm

Graphic Novels Cover to Cover (ages 12 & up) As graphic novels carry out their manifest destiny, swallowing up the real estate of library shelves and, more slowly, classroom curricula, the final frontier of acceptance may be the book group. The broad themes and splashy visuals often associated with comics might seem innately at odds with the intimate, personal discussions engendered in book clubs, so the challenge for the format is to prove it can fulfill the specific needs of the diversifying book-group market by promoting discussion and fostering social opportunity. Maximum participants are 20.


Special Announcement:


Writing Competition Deadline approaching!

The Friend of the Coweta Public Library presents the 2016 Student Story Writing Contest for children in grades 3-12. Your child(ren) can submit their Fantasy Fiction story to any one of the CPLS locations (Grantville Branch, Central Library, A. Mitchell Powell Branch or Senoia Branch) by 6:00pm on Thursday, September 29th.


Loving Me Phenomenally with Endless Opportunities program:

Due to lack of registration, the CPLS Grantville Branch Library cannot offer the Loving Me Phenomenally program thru November 5th. We hope to bring this program back to the Grantville area in fall 2017. Thank you to the parents and girls who participated in the program this September.


Hope to see you at the library!

Re:         Volunteer Help for the Hummingbird Festival


Hello All,

Festival weekend is only 3 weeks away and we are developing our volunteer schedule.  We desperately need volunteers to sell water at the water stations, and sell tee shirts and misc. items at the festival headquarters booth.  Additionally, we need some strong young men or women to help supply water and materials to these stations.
Please ask your family and friends; any help is greatly appreciated.  It is becoming increasingly difficult each year with attendance building; and we’re not getting any younger!!

Thanks in advance for anything you can do.  Call me at 706-333-2520
