Georgia’s 2015 Public Library of the Year is the Lee County Library. Presented to the library whose staff best exemplifies the qualities needed to positively impact the lives of residents in the communities it serves, the award will be presented by Walker to the library at the Lee County Board of Commissioners meeting in Leesburg on Jan. 12.
“We couldn’t be more happy than for our system to be named Library of the Year,” said Director Claire Leavy. “This is an amazing honor for our employees, for our library board and for our community. It proves that the support we receive from our local governments and elected officials, school system and Economic Development Authority is paying off, positioning Lee County addresses to be among the most sought after in the state.”
