ATLANTA -- The newly redesigned website of the Georgia Public Library Service is now live at www.georgialibraries.org.
The website incorporates new branding for Georgia Public Library Service, including a logo that represents the role of public libraries as welcoming, innovative and fun places to achieve your goals.
"Our public libraries are the heart of their communities; they empower their patrons, support job seekers and provide educational opportunities for students of all ages," said State Librarian Julie Walker. "We are thrilled to share our vision and resources more effectively to libraries and the communities they serve through this website."
The website is a hub for public library directors and staff to easily access the resources they need to improve the lives of all Georgians through their local library.
