The R. T. Prince Memorial Library in Mize reopens this month beginning Monday, Feb. 6, at 2:30 p.m. The Mize Library’s hours of operation are each Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday; 2:30-5:30 p.m. Mrs. Betty Medlock is the new branch manager.
Mrs. Medlock has lived in the Smith County area for two and a half years with her husband, the minister of the South Raleigh Christian Church. They have been in the ministry for more than thirty years and have lived in many places; the most exotic of which was the Grand Cayman Islands. The Medlocks have three grown children, 4 grandchildren and another one on the way! Mrs. Medlock also teaches preschool at the First Baptist Church in Taylorsville.
Medlock has worked the last couple of weeks with the staff of the Raleigh Library during her orientation to the Library System. When asked what she wants for the Library in Mize, Medlock answered, “I hope to make the community aware of the Library and the services available. The Library has a lot to offer the community.” Programming, including Preschool Story Time and summer reading programs, will continue at the Library. For information on how you can get involved through programming, donations, or volunteering call the Library at 601-733-9414 during business hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Mrs. Medlock can also give information regarding the Friends of the Library, a membership organization that supports the Library with projects throughout the year.
