ARTICLE 1 STATE PUBLIC LIBRARY ACTIVITIES

Editor's notes.

- Ga. L. 2000, p. 618, ยง 1, not codified by the General Assembly, provides: "This Act shall be known and may be cited as the 'A Plus Education Reform Act of 2000.'"

OPINIONS OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

County libraries established and conducted for educational purposes.

- County library established and conducted as provided for in these provisions is for educational purposes and any recreation as devolves therefrom is a by-product. 1948-49 Op. Att'y Gen. p. 515.

In view of the inherent nature of library facilities as a learning tool and the pervasive relationship between educational authorities and library systems on both the state and local governmental levels, together with the stated legislative policy that the establishment of a public library service is to be part of the provisions for public education in this state, the use of common school funds for the construction of public library facilities is an expenditure for educational purposes. 1975 Op. Att'y Gen. No. 75-33.
