According to our media partner, The Albany Herald, Chairman of the Board of the Dougherty County Public Library System, Guy Craft has resigned effective today.
Dougherty County Commission Chairman, Jeff Sinyard reportedly received the letter this morning.
Questions had been raised in the last several weeks about two of the library system's four branches closing over the last several months. Commissioners said they had no knowledge of the closures and are planning to put a commissioner on the library board to make sure that lack of communication doesn't happen again.
The full letter issued by Craft is found below:
