Help us get the word out

Do you know anyone who is out of a job, needs a computer to look for a job or apply for one? If so, let them know about the library's public access computers. We are accepting appointments for their use on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and again from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Help us get the word out.

The library has also begun to catalog new books for the collection, so be sure to check out our Facebook page for the current list. The library offers curbside service. You may reserve 2 items per person, we retrieve the books for you and deliver them to your car. Give us a call and find out how convenient it is.

Welcome to Pearl River County Library System

Welcome to the new blog, "From the Director", where you will be kept up-to-date on all things library in Pearl River County, MS. This will be a platform where I will explain what we do and why we do it. There are many services the library system offers the people of this county, many of them used very little.

I would also like this to be interactive. Do you have questions about services offered? New books? How to do something? Just shoot me an email and I will respond directly to you and if the question is pertinent to other library users, I will post the question and answer right here.

I have thought about using this platform to review books; guide users to online reference resources; today's literary birthday with short bio; trivia question of the day. I'm not sure if I can do all of this. Do you think I should include something else? Please suggest.

See you around the internet.
