National Library Week—April 14-20

Whether you are a job seeker looking for resources to land a new job, a parent looking for free activities for children or a student searching for your next favorite book, you belong @ your library.

Today’s libraries help level the playing field by making both print and digital information affordable, available and accessible to all people.  Libraries provide cultural heritage and genealogical collections, materials in print and electronic formats, job seeking resources, and many other creative and resourceful programs.

Libraries have historically served as our nation’s great equalizers of knowledge. The strength of libraries has always been the diversity of their collections and commitment to serving all people.
Join in the celebration of National Library Week April 14th-20,  with The George W. Covington Memorial Library, a branch of the Copiah-Jefferson Regional Library System and a member of the Longleaf Library Consortium.    The library will recognize this special week with several promotional activities.  All visiting the library will be given daily prizes.  During the week, visitors and patrons can register for prizes provided by local merchants by guessing how many books are in the library.  A prize will be awarded to a child, a juvenile, and an adult.  Names will be drawn on Friday, April 19th at 3:00 p.m. (Patrons do not have to be present to win.)   Also, on this day, Friends of the Library will provide free patron card lamination for all patrons from 2:00—4:00 p.m. 

It is the library’s mission to provide free and equal access to information, knowledge of new technologies, lifelong learning opportunities, and the joys of reading for a diverse community of users.  The hours of operation are Monday—Friday 9:00 a.m.—6:00 p.m. and Saturday 9:00 a.m. –12:00 noon.  You can visit us on the web: and
