LAWRENCEVILLE, GA (July 31, 2019) — Peach State Federal Credit Union has committed to donating $2,500 to Friends of the Libraries of Towns County.  The funds will support two Northeast Georgia libraries over the next five years. The Mountain Regional Library and Towns County Public Library branches will receive $500 per year through 2023 from the credit union beginning this year.
