“Georgia’s public libraries support local economic and workforce development efforts in many innovative ways. We’re so pleased to add this partnership with the American Library Association and Grow with Google to build upon these efforts.”

— State Librarian Julie Walker

ALA will provide Georgia Public Library Service with $20,000 to host a Grow with Google event, manage funding for libraries to hold their own virtual events, and provide grants to libraries for innovative events supporting local jobseekers or small businesses. Grow with Google has provided ALA with this funding to support State Library Agencies in recognition of the challenges facing libraries as they start to re-open and adapt services due to COVID-19.

Georgia Public Library Service supports local jobseekers and small businesses in many ways, including through free online resources such as the Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative and Learning Express Job and Career Accelerator. Georgia’s public libraries bridge the digital divide, providing crucial high-speed internet and WiFi access.
