On March 23, 2017, the Thomas J. Garland Library at Tusculum hosted a children’s story time entitled “Learning about Lacrosse, The Oldest Sport in North America” in partnership with the Greeneville-Greene County Library.
The event was led by members of the Tusculum men and women’s lacrosse teams including Ross Parsons, Claire Stanton, Christen Craig, Brooke Wagner and Hayley Bartlett. Local children were treated to a fun book about lacrosse, a question and answer session, the opportunity to try on some of the player’s lacrosse equipment, a craft and a treat bag from the Tusculum library staff.
Tusculum library director Kathy Hipps said, “This was a great chance for the attendees to learn about a sport not well known in the area. I think the adults in the audience enjoyed the evening as much as the kids did.”
