Teens and tweens will find weekly activities at the library that include opportunities to paint, make clay sculptures, participate in mystery role playing games and breakout boxes, talk with author Geanna Culbertson about her Crisanta Knight book series , as well as learn how to cook from a local chef.

Located in the south part of Forsyth County, Sharon Forks Library serves an increasingly diverse community. Usage of Sharon Forks Library, which opened in November , has outpaced even the rapid growth of the county. We see more than , library visitors and 24, patrons attending programs annually. All this activity could not be contained in such a relatively small space, so we knew that we needed to expand the size of the building. McMillan Pazdan Smith was awarded the contract in to design the expansion and renovation.
All four branches of the library system are located in the county seat of Cumming. The Forsyth County Public Library as of had the highest circulation per capita in the state of Georgia. The first library in Forsyth County was run out of the home of Laura Hockenhull, who at the time owned a private library and decided to open it up to the public. By the Works Progress Administration WPA of Forsyth opened the first formal county library with a collection of just over volumes. With funding from the WPA, this collection of books was housed throughout the county, largely on a bookmobile that covered 20 routes through the county.
