Connecting Families

     Alabama families can now visit their public library and communicate visually with their loved ones deployed overseas.

     The Athens-Limestone Public Library is honored to participate in the Connecting Families initiative launched by Governor Bob Riley. Connecting Facilities is a partnership between the Alabama Public Library Service (APLS) and the Alabama Broadband Initiative started by Governor Riley earlier this year. The program got its start thanks to grant funds given by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Families can now communicate visually thanks to computers equipped with video web cameras.

HoustonLibrary

      The Houston Memorial Library is the former home of two-time Alabama governor and U.S. Senator George S. Houston.

      "George Smith Houston (January 17, 1811 - December 31, 1879) was an American Democratic politician who was the 24th Governor of Alabama from 1874 to 1878.

      Born in 1811 in Franklin, Tennessee, he was elected to the House of Representatives in 1841, whereupon he served nine consecutive terms.

      His entry into the governorship in 1874 initialized a string of Democratic governors which remained unbroken until H. Guy Hunt, a Republican, became governor in 1987.

      Houston had been elected to the Senate in 1866 but was not allowed to take the seat, as Alabama was still under Reconstruction. He was later reelected and served in the Senate from March 4, 1879 until his death at the end of that year in Athens, Alabama."(wikipedia)
