I just want to take a moment to introduce myself, I am Nicholas Edward Parker. I am the new branch manager at the Northwest Point Reservoir Library. I have been at the Reservoir for a month now getting to know the library and the various patrons who visit daily. I have been with the Central Mississippi Regional Library System for 10 months. I look forward to getting to know each of my patrons.

Book Bubbles with Uno
Our Library fish Uno has had a very busy summer! Not only has he been checking out books to read at night in his sunken pirate ship, but he has also been in touch with some of his favorite authors over the summer with ideas about how they can better their books for their readers both fish and people alike. Come by the library to tell Uno what you would like to see in your favorite authors' books.
Thank you for being a Friend!
During the week of October 21st through the 27th, we want to thank our Library Friends Group for all that they do for the librarians who work in the libraries! We would love for you to join the Friends! Please stop by the Reservoir Library and pick up a Friends signup sheet to join this great group to give back to your local library. As a bonus, we will throw in some cookies to thank all our new friends for joining!
During the month of October, we are starting a brand-new Library card! October 1st is the debut of our Acorn Cards! With this card, you can check out up to two items and not have to pay any fines for overdue items. We encourage all parents with young children to come to the library to sign up for one of our Acorn Cards. We also encourage our special needs patrons to register for one as well! Already have a library card but want to get an Acorn Card? No problem! We will be glad to change your account from a regular library card to an Acorn Card. All fines from your previous library card will be waived when you sign up for an Acorn Card! During the first month, all names will be put into a drawing for a secret grand prize! What will it be? Who knows! Keep your eyes out for our library squirrel Acorn. She may be visiting her friend Uno while she is checking out books to take back to her tree to read!
During the month of October come to the library to see our many Halloween Displays! The theme for this month is Spooktacular! Come to the Reservoir to see our very own Spooktacular display and log onto Facebook to like and share our pictures so that the Reservoir Library will win the first-place prize! While you are visiting the library keep an eye out for the pieces of candy that have been hidden throughout! Who put it there? Was it the ghost or the librarians? Be on the lookout for the many different ghost and goblins that visit the library as well during Halloween!
We have many fun and exciting events planned at the Northwest Point Reservoir Library for the month of October. We hope to see all our patrons attend these events free of charge and encourage them to bring their friends and families with them as well so that they too can see the many services that libraries can offer them and the community.
We hope to see you there!
