The fabulous, and tireless, GLA President, Liz Bagley, would like to share the joint letters from GAIT, GLA, and GLMA that she hand delivered to the State Capitol this morning. The letters are addressed to Governor Nathan Deal and Secretary of State Brian P. Kemp, and they set out the associations' opposition to the closure of the Georgia Archives slated for November 1.
Liz was one of the eighty (some reports say 125-ish) supporters of the Georgia Archives to attend the Governor's ironically scheduled signing of a proclamation to celebrate October as Archives Month across the state.
Many thanks to the officers who drafted these well-crafted letters and the Georgia library community for their continued support of our wonderful Archives!
