“The last five years, the library has been like a second home as I used it to complete my master’s degree & start my doctoral. I have developed friendships & received help from total strangers.” What’s your library story? #georgialibraries #mylibrarystory

Rural libraries are essential to their communities. They often are the only source of free high-speed internet, provide access to millions of books & resources through PINES, & much more. https://georgialibraries.org/rural-libraries-are-essential-to-their-communities/… #georgialibraries

All public libraries in Georgia have free high-speed internet, and Georgia is the only state that offers matching funds to completely cover a library’s internet service bill. #GeorgiaLibraries

Bringing high-speed internet and technology to people in public spaces is another way Georgia’s public #libraries can effectively adapt to meet the changing needs of their communities.
