East Mississippi Regional Library was founded first as a demonstration project by the Mississippi Library Commission. Over the years we have seen many innovations enter the library world – computers, internet, new formats such as VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, and at some bigger libraries books in MP3 and iPod formats. But the basic function of the library still goes on – to provide information, knowledge and recreation to any one who walks in the door, or calls on the phone, or checks out our website and blog.
All are welcome to see what we have to offer. Come check us out!!
