The Beverly J. Brown Library at 7395 South Siwell Road in Byram, Mississippi will be closing on November 30, 2019. The library is being relocated to a temporary, modular building provided by the City of Byram on Terry Road behind the present Byram City Hall.
The Jackson Hinds Library Board of Trustees approved the closure at their October 22nd meeting. The County Board of Supervisors voted to close the present facility earlier in the month. The move is necessary due to a greater demand for library services at the present facility, and the increased amount of traffic on Siwell Road.
The process of moving the library is expected to take about two months. During the move to the temporary facility, Byram Library customers are encouraged to use the Ella Bess Austin Library at 420 West Cunningham Road in Terry, Mississippi, while the new temporary library is readied for an opening sometime in early 2020.
