Words cannot express how grateful I am for the funds
provided to build the new Kinchafoonee / Terrell County Library Building;
local funds from the Terrell County Commissioners and funds from our State
Legislature; a very special thanks to Representative Bobby Hanner. I
know the State Library shares our joy in seeing our dream become a reality
because we were one of the last Regions in the State to build a new
Headquarters Regional / Public Library.
As the new facilities are truly now a reality, it is
still difficult for me and the staff to realize we are now housed in our new
offices and services are available in this new location.
As I move around using the technology in the new
||that you can now step up to a
machine and in a matter of minutes, you can bring into view a full text of a
article and in another
few minutes, you can have a copy of the text in your hands - Internet
Access. I am confident that the new facility and resources will
enhance and enrich the quality and quantity of library service for the
patrons of the Terrell County Public Library. I encourage the entire
community to come and use the facility regularly.
Many have heard me say that a library is the doorway
to a "lifelong learning." In my opinion, the doors of the new Terrell
County Library will continue to be the doors to the "lifelong learning" in
Terrell County and the surrounding communities.
