The System is a partner in the community as it encourages and supports literacy. Here are a list of our official collaborations and partnerships:

Georgia Libraries for Accessible Statewide Services (GLASS)

Through the Georgia Libraries for Accessible Statewide Services (GLASS), Georgia’s Regional Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped and cooperating local libraries, Georgians have access to a free national library program that offers books and magazines on cassette tape and in Braille. These materials are provided by the Library of Congress, National Library Service for the Blind & Physically Handicapped (NLS), to eligible persons with a visual or physical disability. All reading material and playback equipment is sent to borrowers and returned by postage-free mail.

Oconee River Greenway Partnership

The Oconee River Greenway Foundation (ORGF) is a non-profit organization committed to raising awareness and funds to support the Oconee River Greenway. The Oconee River Greenway Park and Riverwalk provides the city of Milledgeville and Baldwin County with a safe and beautiful area to walk, jog, bicycle, relax and enjoy the beauty and sounds of the Oconee River. The Greenway offers multiple individual fishing stations and a boat ramp as well as multi-use trails. Most importantly, the Greenway helps to protect middle Georgia’s greatest resource, the Oconee River, for future generations. For more information on The Oconee River Greenway visit their website.

The Green Market

The Twin Lakes Library System cares about the community’s health! That’s why we’ve partnered with the Green Market to provide Milledgeville/Baldwin County with informational events and fundraisers, as well as cross-promotion for all of our events. The Green Market, a local sustainable farmers market features vegetables, fruit, meat, bread, preserves and plants.

The Green Market meets on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays at the Milledgeville Pavilion (next to Golden Pantry), April-November. The library has an “open door policy” to set up a table at the Green Market anytime, free of charge. In exchange, the library handles all of the printing for The Green Market’s flyers and promotional materials.

Modern Foreign Language Department at Georgia College/ENGAGE Program

ENGAGE, the Georgia College Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), provides a blueprint for building a culture of engaged learning through the development of structured and assessable Community-based Engaged Learning (C-bEL) experiences that connect students with the liberal arts and the wider community.
 
The Twin Lakes Library System has partnered with the Modern Foreign Language Department at GC to provide the community with free foreign language courses and foreign language materials/resources at the Mary Vinson Memorial Library. Through this partnership, the library gives Georgia College students a chance to have a Community Based Learning Experience.
