SPECIAL FOCUS: COUNTIES SHINE
Georgia Public Library Service
By David Walker,
Director of Communications and Strategic Partnerships
TWO OF GEORGIA'S PUBLIC LIBRARIES, one librarian and one library advocate
made headlines across the state and nationally earlier this year.
In early January, Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) honored the Lee
County Library as Georgia's 2015 Public Library of the Year. Later that month,
the Dade County Library was named a finalist for Library Journal's 2016 Best
Small Library in America.
The Lee County award was one of three inaugural Georgia Public Library
Service Awards, honoring the outstanding service and achievements of
Georgia's public libraries, librarians and library champions.
