An Idea That's Long Overdue: Library Book Amnesty Week National Library Week is April 10-16 in Hogansville. As a part of NLW activities, libraries in the Troup-Harris- Coweta Regional Library including Hogansville Public Library will have "Amnesty Week." Fines will be waived on any overdue books returned dur- ing that period no matter how long the books have been checked out. "It is important to get these books returned since we have very little money to purchase new books" said Jane Gottshall, Branch Manager, of the Hogansville Public Library. "We hate to spend our money replacing books on popu- lar topics because people did not return them. We want to spend our money .on new titles." "We hope users will take advantage of Amnesty Week to look under beds and furniture at their hoines and in their car trunks and under car seats for missing items." The majority of overdue books are those that other peo- ple want to use including how-to books; study books forGED, SAT, and other tests; automobile repair; cookbooks; learning foreign languages; investing - and, of course, bestseUers. "We want these materials back so others can enjoy them, too," she said. The Grantville Public Library, Harris County Public Library, LaGrange Memorial Library, Senoia Public Library, and Williams Memorial Library, all members of the Troup- Harris-Coweta Regional Library system, are also participat- ing in Amnesty Week. Movie Gives Accurate Portrayal, Says College History Professor By CLINT CLAYBROOK . A college history profes- sor who has seen the made- for-TV movie "Warm Springs," says it provides an historically accurate account of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's days at the treat- ment center for polio victims. It also gives a good sense of the impact area people and dealing with polio had on developing characteristics that stayed with FDR for a lifetime, the teacher said. FDR, the child of means learned much here by visit- ing with area people and experimenting with then- modern farming techniques on the substantial acreage he acquired in the area, accord- ing to David Woolmer. He's an assistant profes- sor of history at Marist College, and had a minor rote: ! as a consultant-on-the-movie, which was filmed here, in Monroe and in the Atlanta area. He also serves as Executive Director of the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute in Hyde Park, N.Y. What's impressive is how the movie captures the impact that area people, many of them struggling in the 1920s and early 1930s had on FDR's attitudes towird society, Woolmer said. Area people were strug- gling going into the Great Depression and for years afterward and dealing with them close up taught a son of wealth and privilege much about people in almost com- pletely different circum- stances, Woolmer said. Woolmer said the movie provides an accurate portrait of the struggles and triumphs of themly president ever to have been elected for four terms. Some 300 invited guests will see "Warm Springs" at a premiere at Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation on April 12. The showing will cap off the traditional "Tribute to Our Friend, Neighbor and 32nd President Franklin Delano Roosevelt" on the 60th anniversary of his death here.
