Show Your Support for Georgia Archives Month!

It’s time to begin the celebration of Georgia Archives Month with a proclamation from the Governor!

Please come and join us at 10:30 a.m. at the Governor’s Office (Room 203) at the State Capitol.  This is a great opportunity to publicize our cultural institutions statewide.
