In case you didn’t know, GA Law, OCGA 16–12-104, Library Exception, allows age-inappropriate material in our K‑12 school libraries.
During the 2023 GA Legislative session, SB154 was created to remove Georgia’s K‑12 school libraries from the “Library Exception” law. Unfortunately, the bill did not make it out of committee during the 2023 Legislative session. We need to get this bill passed in the 2024 Legislative session.

3. OCGA 16–12-104 (GA Library Exception law)
Will you PLEASE forward this email to everyone you know that lives in GA?
K‑12 school libraries MUST be removed from the GA “Library Exception” law. SB154 simply removes the word “school” from OCGA 16–12-104. This slight change will prevent K‑12 libraries from being exempt from the law.
