The Jackson-George Regional Library System will say a tearful goodbye to long-time Assistant Director and librarian Alisa St. Amant as she retires January 31, 2022. Alisa will retire after serving a total of 14 years as a librarian with the Library System which began at headquarters in 2008. The library system staff and Friends held a retirement reception in her honor and presented her with a Gold JGRLS library card. The presentation was made by Angela Stewart, JGRLS Library Director.

Alisa has worked in libraries since high school, working for the Library of Hattiesburg and later received her Bachelors. She earned her MLS from the University of Southern Mississippi and worked for several library systems in the state including the Madison County Library System, Lamar County Library System and First Regional Library System. Alisa said, “I have stretched myself beyond anything learned or even discussed in library school several decades ago. I will fondly remember my staff and administration along with my years with this system.  I greatly appreciate all the help over the years and that of the administrative staff, my co-managers and co-workers.”
