National Library Week 2009 is almost at its close!
Worlds Connect @ your library, is a theme we can look at so many different ways. A world of people can obviously 'connect' @ your library, but better yet, the Peoples of the world can 'connect'. Anyone can go into the library and learn about any Peoples; their beliefs, their struggles, their accomplishents! Too deep? Maybe, but very true!
I found this quote attributed to Lady Bird Johnson in an email I received today. "Perhaps NO place in ANY community is so Totally democratic as the town Library. The only entrance requirement is Interest."
The couple of minutes that I spent Googling this quote did not give me the reason, date, or location of this statement by our late First Lady; and the quote sent to me was not emboldened or italicized as you see it quoted here. I just let my knowledge, however limited, of the First Lady's Southern drawl and my interpretation of the quote give it the emphasis I feel she must have meant! Forgive me, but I can see and hear it very clearly in the archived video that plays in my head. I'm sure that she most probably was speaking to a group standing in a garden outside a new building, maybe even a new library, and wearing a pastel outfit with a white handbag in the crook of her elbow, pine trees in the background...oh, sorry, probably too much information!
It is a great quote, and is really fitting for today when everyone thinks the word democratic can only be spelled with a "capitol D". It must have sounded grand in that drawl!

Forest Library will be CLOSED beginning April 20 for move to a temporary location. Watch the Forest Library website and this blog for information regarding opening and availability. Watch this blog for pictures of the progress, also!
What's happening @ your Forest Library? A temporary location has been chosen. The boxes will be packed; the temporary location will be prepped; the boxes will be unloaded and the books put on the shelves. The temporary location will open and construction on the new library will begin soon!
To check out the closest CMRLS libraries, visit Morton Library, Lake Library, Pelahatchie Library, or Brandon Library for needed library resources. However, your CMRLS library card is good in all four counties, 20 libraries - Rankin, Scott, Simpson, and Smith counties. Take a look at all CMRLS libraries, you may want to visit others!
Have a little patience, the Forest Library will be up and running very soon! We hope the excitement of watching the construction of the NEW LIBRARY will help everyone understand this temporary inconvenience.
