JACKSON, MS, May 5, 2023 – Willie Morris Library to reopen for Public Service Pending Repairs
The Jackson Hinds Library System is happy to announce that the Willie Morris Library, located at 4912 Old Canton Road in North Jackson, will reopen to the public on Monday, May 8, 2023, at 9:00 am. The library closed on January 28, 2023, due to substantial water damage caused by broken pipes. We are happy to offer a “soft” reopening of the library before the start of Summer Reading 2023. The national summer reading theme is “All together now.” “We are excited about the future of the Jackson Hinds Library System,” said Executive Director Floyd Council. Patrons should ask the information desk for the key to the restroom until repairs are completed. The library meeting room remains unavailable until repairs are completed. Patrons will find that the book drop has been moved closer to the curbside to make it easier to return books without walking far from your car.
