Mississippi Casinos Support Adult Library Program and Literacy

The Mississippi Library Commission (MLC) announces an added incentive to this year’s Adult Summer Library Program. Eight Mississippi casinos: the IP Casino and Resort in Biloxi; Bally’s Casino – Tunica in Robinsonville; the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Biloxi; the Isle Casino-Hotel in Biloxi; Diamond Jack’s Casino in Vicksburg; Resorts Casino –Tunica in Tunica Resorts; Riverwalk Casino Hotel in Vicksburg; and Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino – Tunica in Robinsonville have donated prizes to the adults who participate in the programs. The values of the prizes range from $100.00 to $430.00, and include free nights stay at the hotels, meals, and spa services. Check with your local library to find out about their registration dates and times and how to qualify for the statewide drawing to be held, Monday, August 1, 2011.

“Novel Destinations,” is the theme for the Adult Summer Library Programs. Each library system or branch will provide different types of programs around the theme and many will provide local prizes in addition to the statewide prizes. All adults are eligible to participate; however, to be eligible to win a statewide prize, you must be 21 years of age or older.

Winners are selected from participants of the Adult Summer Library Programs at participating public library systems. Participating library systems include: Jackson-George Regional Library System, with eight libraries; Central Mississippi Regional Library System, with 20 branches; the Yazoo Library Association with one library; the Dixie Regional Library System, with eight branches; the Sunflower County Library, with five branches; the Waynesboro-Wayne County Library System, with one library; and the Library of Hattiesburg, Petal and Forrest County, with two branches.
