Georgia’s Public Libraries By The Numbers
Assistant Vice Chancellor & State Librarian
A Welcome from the State Librarian
Georgia’s public libraries are the heart and soul of their communities. They are strong, vibrant and relevant to users with a wide variety of needs, hopes and dreams. From toddlers learning to read to students preparing for life beyond high school to older adults looking to stay active in retirement – our libraries offer a variety of programs and resources to keep citizens engaged in all phases of life.
Our libraries are open and welcoming to all, serving the educational, recreational and informational needs of our communities. Our role in educational support, family literacy and economic development cannot be overstated. Here in Georgia, our library leaders work diligently with elected officials to ensure our libraries will continue to be successful in meeting the immediate and long-term needs of citizens.
On behalf of the Georgia Public Library Service and libraries across the state, I invite all Georgians to visit their local library. If you’re a frequent visitor, you’ll experience the service and resources you’ve come to expect. If this is your first visit in a while, you’ll be amazed and delighted by the advances in library design, technology and programming!
