Rural medical scholar
Library offers free access to world of information
With school starting this week, parents of school-age children should remember to add one more important item to the list of school supplies you’ll be collecting: a library card for everyone in the family. The Marshall County Libraries offer your children access to a world of information to support their studies and their personal curiosity.
Each library, Holly Springs, Byhalia, and Potts Camp, have public-access computers (with free use of very expensive databases of reliable, authoritative articles,) photocopiers, fax machines, and excellent reference sections (because sometimes, the best source of information is not the Internet.) Most of the books and magazines can be checked out by card holders, and if the library collection does not have the book you seek, it can often be obtained from another library by Inter-Library Loan. Just ask.
Photocopies and computer prints are .25/page, and faxes may be sent or received for .50/page.
The Marshall County Library in Holly Springs is opened Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 a.m. — 6 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a..m. — 8 p.m., and Saturdays 8 a.m.— 2 p.m.
The Ruth B. French Library in Byhalia is open Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays 1—5 p.m., Thursdays 2—7 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m — 12 noon.
The Potts Camp Library is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 11 a.m. — 5 p.m., Fridays 12 noon— 5 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. — 12 noon.
Your public library is one of the best bargains around — your tax dollars at work. Make a trip and check it out. And get those library cards.
