Where do I find information for the yoga class?

Statement from Stephen Houser, Director of the Twin Lakes Library System

The Twin Lakes Library System is extremely grateful to the Milledgeville City Council for their vote to provide assistance with the funding of the AC system replacement at the Mary Vinson Memorial Library. This allows us to continue our work during the important summer months when our Summer Reading Club takes place. Our existing system, installed in 1986, has given taxpayers many years of good service, but failed in February of this year. As the EPA has phased out the coolant that it uses, a total replacement is necessary.

You may soon see temporary AC units around our building - they have been put in place by our HVAC contractor to help increase the comfort of the building for patrons and staff and to lower humidity, thereby helping to preserve our book collection. Though they are not the equal of a full system, we are optimistic that these measures will see us through until mid-May, when the replacement equipment will arrive from the manufacturer and be installed.

Additionally, concerned community members have asked us about the relationship between grant funding for the new Hancock Branch and our request for assistance with AC replacement. Our funding for that branch was paid for through state grants that are earmarked for that specific project. We were grateful to be selected to receive the state grants for the renovation of the Hancock Branch, but, unfortunately, we’re unable to spend that grant money on AC repairs for the Mary Vinson.

Once again, we would like to express our gratitude to the Milledgeville City Council for their assistance of up to half of the cost of these repairs, and are delighted that we can continue into the warm Georgia summer with a brand new AC system. We hope for many years of service from the newer, more efficient equipment!

Thanks to the city for this assistance. Are they supplying the space occupied by the Hancock branch rent-free?

Our family is so thankful to be cool this summer for the reading program and other activities 🙌🏻🙌🏻
