Georgia fans love Saturday afternoons when the Bulldogs dispatch SEC opponents between the hedges at Sandford Stadium. For those who can't make those events, or those looking to relive some of the glory of Georgia sports past an present, don't miss this upcoming exhibit at Cobb County Libraries.
The University of Georgia's Hargrett Library is bringing sports artifacts from the UGA Athletic Association archive to two Cobb County Libraries in July. The first stop for the Georgia memorabilia is at South Cobb Regional Library, 805 Clay Road, Mableton, on Monday, July 11, 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. The second stop will take place at North Cobb Regional Library, 3535 Old 41 Highway, Kennesaw, on Thursday, July 21, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Following the National Championship football season of 2021, the exhibit understandably will include lots of football items. But other University of Georgia sports also will be well represented, including Georgia Bulldogs track and field star Keturah Orji's 2016 Rio Olympics uniform.
More than 40 items are included in the 2022 exhibit, representing various eras and sports from Georgia athletics. Other items include tickets and football programs, a copy of "The Red & Black March" (Georgia's first ever fight song), and more!
While the exhibit items strictly will be "look-but-don't-touch," staff from the Hargrett Library will be on hand to discuss the exhibit.
