Carterette Series Webinars
Highlighting Trends, Innovation, and Best Practices in Georgia Libraries
In June of 2010, members of the Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Public Library Service launched this bi-monthly educational webinar series. The series highlights trends, innovation, and best practices in libraries. The free sessions are open to interested parties from all geographic (and astral) locations. Topics are chosen to be of interest to students and employees from all library types, and each session is approved for one Georgia Continuing Education (CE) contact hour.
(Formerly known as the Wednesday Webinars, the series was renamed to honor founding member Pat Carterette, who passed away in January of 2011.)

committees and interest groups in planning for COMO programs. If you've
always meant to get involved in your state professional organization, this is
your opportunity to make a difference!

Georgia Libraries Photo Contest
Annual event to document the impact of Georgia Libraries. How do libraries make a difference in people's lives? What would Georgia be like if there were no libraries? What valuable services do libraries provide that can easily go unrecognized and unappreciated? Those are just a few possibilities for people to think about when they unpack their camera bags at their library.
2013 GLA Library Photo Contest submissions are due by June 20, 2013.
