Willis L. Miller Library

The headquarters and largest branch in the South Georgia Regional Library system family tree is located in beautiful Valdosta, Georgia, also known as the Azalea City, boyhood home to the infamous Doc Holiday.

The Willis L. Miller Library will be a true 21st Century library serving Valdosta, Lowndes County, and the entire SGRL Network of libraries.  This library is located in North Valdosta and features 34,000 square feet of facilities offering general library services, gig speed WiFi internet, computer work stations, a children's area, teen area, 3-D printing maker space, class rooms, computer labs, microfilm facilities, and numerous well appointed meeting rooms of all sizes to serve the community.

This new facility, inaugurated July 28, 2018, is the culmination of efforts by the SGRL system Board, Library staff, stakeholders, and the community.  It was made possible thanks to the generosity of donors, and the support of the community.

In particular, the SGRL libraries wish to recognize the generous support of Mr. Willis L. ("Wyn") Miller which made this outstanding new library possible.  A lifelong resident of Valdosta, Wyn’s love of public libraries came from his mother taking him to the Carnegie Library, Valdosta’s first public library, as a child. A previous trustee and chairman of the South Georgia Regional Library System Board of Trustees, Wyn and his family have a long history of serving in the community. His father, Willis Miller Jr., dedicated land in 1988 upon which the W.L. Miller Memorial Library sits in Lakeland, Georgia. The Miller family is honored to contribute to this facility and to support other libraries in Lowndes and surrounding counties.
