History of the Georgia Library Media Association

In 1988, the Georgia Library Media Department of the Georgia Association of Educators (GAE) became an independent entity, the Georgia Library Media Association (GLMA). A department of GAE serving school librarians had existed since 1930, and the Georgia Library Association had a GAE affiliate from 1947. Merchurea Chase Williams served as GLMA president, 1990-1991. In 1993 GLMA incorporated, establishing a Board of Directors and an Executive Committee, and continues as the largest professional organization serving school library media professionals in Georgia. GLMA is affiliated with GAE and is the state affiliate to the American Association of School Libraries (AASL), a division of the American Library Association (ALA).
