It’s that time of year again! The American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes have teamed up for the fourth annual Holiday Mail for Heroes program. From now until December 9th you are invited to send holiday cards to our American service members, their families, and veterans all over the world. Anyone can send a card and you can send as many as you would like!
The deadline for this year is December 9th.
The library will forward the cards to Pitney Bowes where they are sorted and sent to The American Red Cross. Red Cross workers deliver holiday greetings to service men and women in their communities. Unfortunately, if your cards are not dropped off to the library by December 9th they cannot be delivered.

Our libraries are THANKFUL for our patrons! Without patrons, where would libraries be? You could win a $25 gift card if you tell us why you are thankful for the library! Your name will be placed in a drawing and the winner will be contacted at the end of the month. Please only submit one entry per adult. This contest runs November 1-30. This contest is running at the Pearl Public Library but you can tell your favorite librarian at any library why you are thankful for the library!

The Mississippi Department of Health will be sponsoring a program at the library in correlation with the Great American Smokeout. According to the American Cancer Society, “About half of all Americans who keep smoking will die because of the habit. Each year about 443,000 people in the United States die from illnesses related to tobacco use. Smoking cigarettes kills more Americans than alcohol, car accidents, suicide, AIDS, homicide, and illegal drugs combined."
Hope Ladner, Legislative Liaison for the MS. Dept. of Health will be speaking about the Smokefree Air Mississippi initiative.
This event is FREE to the public. A small luncheon, including sandwiches, drinks, and dessert will be served. RSVP is a must as seating is limited.
To reserve a seat, please contact the library at (601) 919-1911 ext. 13
