The purpose of the Herbert Tuggle Special Collection housed at Washington Memorial Library is to honor African American heritage, especially in the Middle Georgia community. The collection contains materials of regional importance, historical and cultural significance, written by or about African Americans, to preserve their struggles and contributions to our combined American history. This collection grew from the Amelia Hutchings Library holdings, which were incorporated into Washington Memorial Library in 1969 by Herbert Tuggle. Mr. Tuggle created a research collection to promote public awareness of the importance of library resources and services related to African American history and interest. He was a librarian at Amelia Hutchings before he came to Washington Memorial Library, eventually retiring as the Head of Reference after 40 years of service. We will continue to collect works integral to the cultural, educational, informational, and recreational needs of African Americans and our larger diverse community.
Business and Nonprofit Center (BANC) Collection
The purpose of the Business and Nonprofit Center (BANC) Collection housed at Washington Memorial Library is to provide information and support necessary for local businesses and nonprofit agencies to grow from start to finish. The collection contains up-to-date and influential materials to support this endeavor, and is administered by the BANC librarian.
