Mississippi Library Commission Hosted "Library Day" at the State Capitol

14 May 2016 12:01 PM | Sarah Mangrum (Administrator)

The Mississippi Library Commission (MLC) hosted “Library Day” at the Mississippi State Capitol on Tuesday, March 8, 2016.  The event was held on the First Floor Rotunda from 11:00am to 2:00pm.  There were costumed characters from some classic children’s books, demonstrations of 3-D printers, and many other exciting things showcasing what is going on in today’s libraries.  Representatives from the Mississippi Library Association (MLA) and Friends of the Mississippi Libraries, Inc. joined MLC to share the news from the libraries in their communities.


This event provided an opportunity for MLC and its supporters to talk with state lawmakers about the value of libraries in their communities and how libraries enhance and strengthen the state.  For those who were unable to attend the event, a note or call to lawmakers is encouraged.  For more information about “Library Day” or about advocating for libraries, contact MLC at 601-432-4111.


The Mississippi Library Commission supports innovative programs and initiatives to strengthen and enhance library services for all Mississippians.  The agency is funded by the Mississippi Legislature, with additional funding provided through the Institute of Museum and Library Services under provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), offering leadership in library services, advocacy, and training for library professionals and paraprofessionals.
