Peach State Federal Credit Union has donated $5K to another Northeast Georgia library.
The Toccoa-Stephens County Library will receive $1,000 per year through 2022 from the credit union beginning this year.
The Toccoa-Stephens County Library is the central library for the Northeast Georgia Regional Library system, which has six affiliated libraries in Habersham, Rabun, Stephens and White counties.
“The library is an important resource to residents of Stephens County,” said Library Manager Emily McConnell. “This donation will help us work to foster literacy and lifetime learning in our community by enabling us to purchase the tools we need to help others.”
The donation is the third Peach State has made to North Georgia libraries in the past month. The credit union also presented $5,000 each to both the Cornelia and Clarkesville library branches.
“Our foundation in education coupled with our sense of community leads us to make connections such as these,” said Marshall Boutwell, president and CEO of Peach State. “Libraries are an important component in the learning process, and we hope that this donation will open new avenues for education in the Stephens County area.”
