Library Hours Changing at Five Branches
November 30, 2017 | General News

We never want to cut back on library hours, but deep state budget cuts in our Personnel Incentive Grant program cost our library system $100,000 for fiscal year 2017-2018. The City of Jackson and Hinds County contributed $60,000 above our normal budget to help make up the shortfall, but we still had to reduce staffing costs by closing one afternoon a week at 5 libraries--Terry, Bolton, Utica, Edwards and Raymond.

Welty Library was closed last Friday by the state Insurance Commissioner, Mike Chaney, due to violations of the state fire code. Library personnel are working to correct violations that we control, and we are hoping to reopen if it is possible to do so. In the meantime, please return items to the book drop.
