Despite promises from Governor Deal to keep the Georgia Archives open, there is no plan in place for such action. The 7 staff laid off last week received confirmation this week, and planned hours are still restricted to "by appointment only."
The Friends of Georgia Archives and History continue to take the lead on educating the public on this issue and gathering support. Two rallies are planned for October, one at the Georgia Capitol and one at the Georgia Archives building.
Save the Date: Wed., Oct. 3, noon-1 p.m.
Location: Capitol South Wing (inside)
Location: Georgia Archives, Morrow, GA
