A Message From CMRLS Director, Mara V. Polk


August 23, 2021 
Dear Valued Library Patrons: 
On behalf of our entire family of libraries, we want to thank you for your support during the past couple of months. We are especially thankful for the financial support from our government leadership in Rankin, Scott, Simpson and Smith Counties.  
Our Central Mississippi Regional Library System Board of Trustees and Library Team are committed to providing traditional library services as well as digital services which include access to eContent (eBooks and eAudios), Databases, and free Wi-Fi at all branches.  
Currently, all libraries are open and available to the public. Most libraries are all open at their pre-pandemic operating hours. Each branch has hand sanitizer and masks for patron and staff use. We are recommending that patrons and staff wear masks, but it is not required. Because of the popularity and demand, our libraries are still offering curbside services.
All book returns are open. All returned materials are cleaned before they are shelved. Study rooms/spaces and meeting rooms are available for use. All public access computers are available for use.  Free Wi-Fi can be accessed on the outside of the library building. We are offering virtual and limited in-person programs mostly story time, book clubs and Friends of the Library meetings. All programs require pre-registration. Visit us on our website: for more information.  
Thank you for being a CMRLS patron!  Be safe and be well. 
Warm regards,  
Mara V. Polk, Director
