CRITICAL UPDATE!! (08/17/18)

Good News, But The Macon Library Needs Just a Little More Support!

We are extremely excited to announce that the Macon-Bibb County Commission heard your voices and unanimously voted on Thursday (08/16/18) to pass emergency funding to avoid library closures for the next month. They also voted to pass a millage that could potentially fund the library.

However, that isn’t enough!

Even though the commissioners voted to pass a millage that could keep the libraries open indefinitely, the vote didn’t specifically designate long-term funding to the library. In fact, Commissioner Mallory Jones says that he didn’t vote for the millage because there was no designation of funds attached to it.

“This is an emergency measure to keep libraries, and we're hopeful that's it's continued,” said Library Director, Jennifer Lautzenheiser.

We want to make sure that this funding is continued and that a percentage of the the money from the mill will be designated for long-term funding for the Macon libraries.

PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TODAY TO ASK THE COMMISSIONERS TO DESIGNATE FUNDING FROM THE MILLAGE TO FUND THE LIBRARY

Macon-Bibb County Commissioners have voted to close the Middle Georgia Regional Library because they could not agree on a budget. The Middle Georgia Regional Library is absolutely vital to our communities. Already the Riverside branch, the Sturling branch, and the Lanford branches are going to close on Tuesday, July 3rd. The Washington branch will only be open as long as reserve funding holds out.
