Speakers, education, and lifelong learning
In 1990 a small but visionary group of people on Skidaway Island conceived the idea of a community library. It started out small with books donated by residents in a store front located in the commercial section of the island. Through the generosity of many people a building was constructed in 1996. Today we have close to 2,900 members and 24,000 books. Unlike tax supported public libraries, we receive no funds from Federal, State or local governments. Our funding comes from membership fees, donations, book rentals, the sale of used books and engraved bricks. Because we are a Section 501 (c) (3) organization, all donations are tax deductible. 1 Skidaway Village Square Savannah, GA 31411 912-598-1183 The Library is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday. We are closed on Sunday and the following holidays: Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Day, and New Years Eve and Day.
Telfair Academy Guild, or TAG as it is known, was formed over 40 years ago in 1976, by a group of women who wanted to support the goals and activities of Telfair Museums. Over the years, TAG has raised significant funds and contributed untold hours of volunteerism. TAG meetings take place each month and include lectures and behind-the-scenes information about museum activities. Art education is the primary focus for TAG’s presented events. Proceeds help fund the Telfair’s lecture series and other selected projects. TAG at NIGHT: TAG also offers evening meetings at 5:30pm every other month, September through May. These are held at local art venues, where you will be welcomed with wine and hors d’oeuvres.
