Historic Teacher’s Monthly Reports Now Online

In early 2018 the Laurens County Library received a $5000 grant from the Digital Library of Georgia to digitize, preserve, and share online hundreds of teacher monthly reports from African-American schools in Laurens County during the 1930s. These records are now available online. Fifty-eight schools are included in this collection! (Click here to read the full press release.)
