Under the leadership of the First Lady, Sandra Deal, a wonderful group of volunteer librarians and cataloguers have meticulously catalogued approximately 3,658 books in the Mansion Collection. The office of the State Librarian has been working to put all of the titles of the books in the collection on line. While the books themselves are not accessible to the public, a catalog is being developed to allow virtual access to the titles at the Mansion.
The collection represents Georgia’s rich literary heritage with copies signed by Margaret Mitchell, Joel Chandler Harris, Ferrol Sams, Erskine Caldwell, Celestine Sibley and other Georgia authors. Take a sneak peak at what is currently online. Remember that it is a work in progress, so keep checking back for additions and changes.
