Public schools are operated by Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools. Chatham County's Live Oak Public Libraries constitute a regional library system that provides services to three Georgia counties: Chatham and Liberty; the former name of the system, the Chatham and Liberty County Public Libraries, described this collaboration.

In 2002, the name was changed to Live Oak, which reflects the personality of the region as well as the life and growth of its branches. At the beginning of the twentieth century, city leaders in Savannah began to discuss the need for a public library; the history of libraries in Chatham County dates to 1903. According to Geraldine LeMay, former director of the Savannah Public Chatham-Effingham and Liberty Regional Library, the Georgia Historical Society and the city of Savannah worked out a plan that year to establish the Savannah Public Library; the idea was the brainchild of the Georgia Historical Society, which set up a planning committee to determine how the facilities of the society might best be useful to the city of Savannah. In a joint meeting of committee members from the Society and the city of Savannah, a Free Public Library was established that would prove to be of great value to the community; this Free Public Library, did not serve citizens of color. The parties agreed to allow free use of the Society's books, provide physical space for the library, annually contribute $500 in financial support for the library.

In turn, the city would contribute $3,000 in annual support. The library opened in June 1903 but did not serve the public until November. By 1909, the Georgia Historical Society was no longer able to meet its financial commitment, leaving the city to provide full financial support; the library remained at Hodgson Hall, the space provided by the Georgia Historical Society, until 1915. From its early beginnings the library offered special services to the community, including a department for children; the physical space at Hodgson Hall became too small to accommodate a large reference department, so the library established only a small collection of reference materials.. In 1916, the Savannah Public Library opened to doors to a new facility on Bull Street within the Savannah Victorian Historic District; the new facility was made possible by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation. As the library grew in popularity, it again found itself needing more space; the building was able to add additional space in 1936 thanks to a grant from the U.

S. Works Progress Administration. With an ever-increasing population the library's board of directors decided to expand services beyond the Main Library. In 1916, two branch libraries were opened: the East Side Branch at Habersham and Congress Streets, the Waters Avenue Branch; the ser

No. 9 Operational Group RAAF

No. 9 Operational Group was a major Royal Australian Air Force formation providing fighter, ground-attack and anti-shipping support to the Allies in the South West Pacific theatre during World War II. Established in September 1942, it acted as a mobile striking force independent of the RAAF's static area commands; as the war in the Pacific progressed, No. 9 Operational Group itself developed into an area command called Northern Command, responsible for garrisoning New Guinea. No. 9 Operational Group was formed in New Guinea in September 1942, consisting of seven RAAF squadrons attached to the USAAF's Fifth Air Force. Four of the squadrons were based at three at Port Moresby. On its establishment it was the RAAF's "premier fighting unit" in the South West Pacific Area, its first commander was Group Captain Bill Garing. Administratively, No. 9 OG came under the control of RAAF North-Eastern Area Command. On 1 January 1943, Headquarters No. 9 OG assumed responsibility for the formation's administration as well as its operations, making it independent of North-Eastern Area.

Air Commodore Joe Hewitt became Air Officer Commanding No. 9 OG in February 1943. The same month, the Group's squadrons were reorganised into two wings: No. 71 Wing, covering the units in Milne Bay, No. 73 Wing, those in Port Moresby. In March the group provided the RAAF's contribution to the Battle of the Bismarck Sea, "the decisive aerial engagement" in the SWPA according to General Douglas MacArthur, resulting in twelve Japanese ships being sunk. Between July and October 1943, No. 9 OG was expanded to include a works wing and a radio location wing, its complement of operational squadrons totalling nine, plus a torpedo bomber detachment. Its aircraft carried out operations against enemy bases and lines of communication along the coast of New Britain. In October–November the group launched a number of major assaults on Rabaul and strafing ground and naval targets. Although Hewitt was performing an "excellent job" according to Fifth Air Force commander Major General Ennis Whitehead, he was transferred from his post in November 1943 by the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal George Jones, over accusations of poor discipline within No. 9 OG.

He was replaced by Air Commodore Frank Lukis, who had commanded North-Eastern Area in 1942. In December 1943, No. 9 OG's Kittyhawks took part in a series of attacks culminating in the Battle of Arawe. As the Pacific conflict shifted further north, operational tasking lessened and No. 9 OG became colloquially known in the RAAF as the "Non-Ops Group". It assumed the duties of a garrison force in New Guinea and was renamed Northern Command on 11 April 1944, to better reflect its new function, its mobile strike role was taken over by No. 10 Operational Group, formed on 13 November 1943. Upon its establishment in September 1942, No. 9 OG consisted of the following units: Based at Milne Bay: No. 6 Squadron No. 75 Squadron No. 77 Squadron No. 100 Squadron Based at Port Moresby: No. 4 Squadron No. 22 Squadron No. 30 Squadron In February 1943 the squadrons at Milne Bay became part of No. 71 Wing, while those at Port Moresby formed No. 73 Wing, both wing headquarters reporting to No. 9 OG.

Chime.in

Chime.in was a social networking service and Web site launched in October 2011, operated and owned by UberMedia. Unlike most social networks, Chime.in is organized around subjects instead of people. The website is designed as a place to share with other people who have similar interests. Chime.in lets. It has profile pages and a system for following other users. Chime.in does not have the typical status updates. Instead of statuses, it has “chimes.” "Chimes" are a cross between a blog post. "Chimes" can be about any topic and they can be up to 5,000 characters in length. Together, the "Chimes" make up topic based discussions that can include links, videos and photos. An individual "chime" displays a headline, the first few sentences of a post, a piece of multimedia, a profile picture, interest tags and options for liking and sharing. Chime.in automatically organizes shared media into "Chimeline" streams based on the topics they discuss. The "Chimeline" and "Chimes" contain threaded comments that include a Reddit or Digg style up or downvote system for surfacing the best comments to the top of a chime.

Users and companies can create communities on any subject. Chime.in is unique compared to other developing social networks because users have the ability to post advertisements related to their network and in turn collect revenue. When a user creates a community, they can place advertisements and profit from them directly or let Chime.in populate their community with advertising and split the proceeds. Official site creation/purchase date: 16-Feb-2005 06:33:22 UTC Official public beta launch date: October 18, 2011 On September 3, 2013, UberMedia announced that all user accounts will "automatically be deleted as of September 12, 2013" due to Chime.in undergoing "renovations". In explaining the reason for the "renovations", UberMedia stated "UberMedia has pivoted away from user generated content while we focus on a new mobile ad network as well as continue to develop applications. We're still developing plans, therefore it's too early to speculate on the timing and which form Chime.in will take."

No indication of when, or indeed if, Chime.in would return was given by UberMedia
