Georgia Library Day 2013
Georgia State Capitol Building, Room #123
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
From Diana Very, GLA President:
"Time is money and we all know there's not enough, so we will not ask for time from our legislators this year. We have a tradition of providing the special prints of the original by artist Debbie Davis, matted and donated by Mumford Library Books to give to legislators to remind them of the importance of libraries in the lives of Georgia citizens. This year's print features historic Fort Pulaski in Savannah.
"In order to distribute the prints and not ask for time in their overloaded schedules to join us in a separate room, Georgia Library Day participants will be dividing into groups and delivering the prints personally to their offices with "Love Your Library" stickers to staff.
"This is a great time to come together as a large group to come face to face with our legislators and tell them of the resources provided by their votes. Volunteers are needed and all participation is encouraged. If you don't want to walk the halls of the Capitol, then please come and help coordinate the prints for delivery in Room #123. There's a place for everyone. Bring Board of Trustee members and friends groups to speak about your library."

Georgia Library Day is held each year during the legislative session. The Georgia Library Association, in cooperation with the Georgia Library Media Association and the Georgia Association for Instructional Technology, holds this event for librarians and other library advocates to visit legislators face to face to urge them to support Georgia libraries.
