The library’s two week long “Walking With Spring Program” in late March and early April, corresponding with the middle of thru-hiker season in Franklin, highlights the A.T. and its hikers. Additionally, the MCPL offers free internet access to A.T. hikers and supports many programs offers by the Franklin based Nantahala Hiking Club (NHC).
The A.T. Community Supporter Program is offered by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) at part of its A.T. Community Program. The Community Supporter Program highlights non-profits, organizations, and businesses that provide support to the hiking community, the Appalachian Trail and/or the ATC by recognizing participating entities as “A.T. Community Supporters.” For more information contact Kristina Moe (kmoefontanalib.org) at Macon County Public Library.
