New Fulton library director named

Fulton County commissioners named the head of a Louisiana system as the library’s new leader.

Gabriel Morley will begin his job as the director of the 34-branch Atlanta-Fulton County Library System April 20. Two weeks ago, he was named the sole finalist for the position.

In a statement, Morley said he wanted to use the library to foster Fulton County’s success.

“I’m excited to have this opportunity to work in such a vibrant library system,” he said. “The library is a laboratory for ideas.”

Morley has been director of the 13-branch Calcasieu Parish Public Library System in Lake Charles, La. since 2012. He has previosly led the university libraries at Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee and a three-county public library system in southwest Mississippi.

Morley will be the Fulton system’s first permanent director since 2012.
