What is PINES?
Public Information Network for Electronic Services, or PINES, is Georgia’s public library lending service.
PINES is a national model of service delivery for library users and in cost savings for member libraries. PINES creates a statewide borderless library that eliminates geographic and socio-economic barriers, and the initiative is one way that Georgia Public Library Service provides an innovative, scalable service that creates equity in access to information, no matter where someone lives.
Nearly two million Georgians have PINES library cards, and cardholders live in every county in the state. Any resident of Georgia may obtain a free PINES card by visiting any PINES library.
