Boards of Trustees

Open Meetings Laws and Public Library Boards

The Georgia Open Meetings Law (Official Code of Georgia 50-14-1 and following) requires that all meetings of public library boards or any committee of their members be open to the public. There are very limited reasons for closure of a meeting (often called “going into executive session”). These are specified in law (OCGA 50-14-3).
