Kemp reminds librarians to renew license by June 30

Atlanta – Secretary of State Brian Kemp reminds librarians to renew their professional licenses by June 30, 2016. Currently, there are 978 licensed librarians in Georgia.



“By streamlining our processes and cutting red tape, Georgia’s professional workforce is now able to get their licenses renewed faster than ever before through our agency,” stated Secretary Kemp. “With the June 30 deadline right around the corner, I am encouraging all licensed librarians to renew their professional licenses as early as possible.”
