The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has awarded Georgia Public Library Service a 2009 Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant for $680,327. According to Lyn Hopper, assistant state librarian for library development, the money will be used to fund the GPLS “Librarians Build Communities” program, which will provide the scholarships needed to prepare 45 students to be public librarians and provide them with expertise in community building.

GPLS will collaborate with the Valdosta State University (VSU) Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program.

Planning Group: L-R: Wallace Koehler; Kathleen de la Peña McCook; Lyn Hopper; Linda R. Most.
