This year marks the 90th anniversary of the Mississippi Library Commission. The Library Commission was established March 18, 1926 by an Act of the Mississippi Legislature. According to this act, the library was to provide advice to those seeking to establish libraries, to operate traveling libraries, to collect data from the state's libraries, and to make an annual report to the legislature. Today, the Mississippi Library Commission offers a wide variety of direct and indirect services to Mississippi libraries, Mississippi government agencies, and Mississippi citizens. To celebrate this important anniversary, each month we will publish a post on special events that took place during the library's history. Look for March's post soon!
