10 Most Beautiful Public Libraries in Georgia

Georgia Public Library Service is looking for the 10 most beautiful public libraries in Georgia. Nominations will be judged on the overall design of the building, both in form and function, and in its timelessness of style.  Nominated facilities must currently be in use as a public library in Georgia. Nominations will be accepted online through midnight December 31, 2016.  Please include the name of the library, street address, and up to 400 words explaining why this is the one of the most beautiful libraries in Georgia. Please send any supporting materials, including up to 3 pictures, to beautiful@georgialibraries.org.

The 10 most beautiful libraries will be announced in the spring of 2017.  Winners will receive a plaque and be honored at a reception and press conference to be held at one of the winning libraries. Each facility will also be prominently featured in printed and online materials promoting them as worthy stops for architectural-and literary-based tourism.

The panel of judges includes staff at GPLS and an architectural historian. GPLS encourages all to share this message with Friends and Trustees.
