Pearl River County Library System awarded a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant


The Pearl River County Library System has been awarded a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant to upgrade the technology, health, and career collections with books. This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Mississippi Library Commission.


The library is full of information to help you on your journey towards education such as study guides, books on how to write a college essay, books with a list of colleges, or ways to pay for college. There is updated material about computer programs such as Windows 11 for Dummies, how to use Google workspace, cyber security, becoming data literate, and even “How to hack like a Ghost” by Sparc Flow.


The library also purchased books on health-related issues such as cancer, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer’s, and addictions whether it is drugs, alcohol, or Internet addictions. If you are a caregiver to someone experiencing a debilitating disease we have books that can help guide you in caring for your loved one while maintaining your health. We have some interesting books that were written over the last couple of years on the Wuhan lab, the effects of Covid on society, and what those individuals in the medical field learned about the broken healthcare system in America. These are just a few examples of what each of the libraries has to offer.

The Crosby Memorial Library and Poplarville Public Library invite the patrons to visit either library to check out the display of the new books. Anyone at the circulation desk can show you where the LSTA books are. A little secret to finding them…look for a bright green sticker on them.


For more information, call Crosby Memorial Library at 601-798-5081 or the Poplarville Public Library at 601-795-8411, or visit their website Pearl River County Library System.
