On Thursday, February 2, 2015, representatives from the Georgia Public Library Service and the Georgia Library Association distributed prints of “Fishing in the Chattahoochee” to Georgia legislators. The prints were created by artist Debi Davis with funding from Mumford Books in Jacksonville Florida.
The purpose of distributing the prints to the Georgia legislatives is to raise awareness about the importance of Georgia libraries and the need for continued support from the legislature. This year Julie Walker, Elizabeth McKinney, Whitney Payne, Wendy Cornelisen, Jessica Everingham, Kathy Pillatzki, and Carolyn Fuller distributed the prints to legislators at the State Capitol.
