The Fannie Lou Hamer Library, located at 3450 Albermarle Road, Jackson, MS 39213, will close at the end of the work day, Friday, November 1, 2019 to begin its renovation/makeover. The remodel is being completed by the Jackson Housing Authority and the Wishrock Group with a combination of public and private funds. Signage will be posted during the closure.
The library will receive new paint and flooring, and the shelving, most of which is rusted, will be replaced from surplus shelving that the library system has stored. We expect the new library space will have more room for comfortable furniture that will allow the patrons to have a place for quiet reading, and we hope to expand the children's area as well.
The process is expected to take about a month. At this time, the projected reopening of Fannie Lou Hamer is later in December due to construction delays. We will provide updates on our website and social media during the process.
