Postal Carrier of the Year Announced
By Shellie Zeigler
Talking Book Services Director
Mississippi Library Commission
Each year, the Mississippi Library Commission's Talking Book Services asks their patrons to nominate postal carriers they feel have gone above and beyond the regular duties of their jobs. The patrons of this service live all over the state of Mississippi. Brandon Postal Carrier Marcy Shanks was honored as the 2015 Postal
Carrier of the Year by the Talking Book Services of the Mississippi
Library Commission. (We are always a year behind because we ask our patrons to nominate people after the year is completely over.) We celebrated Marcy Shanks and the patron who nominated her, Brandon resident Ralph Smitherman, on June 7 at the Brandon Post Office. Ms. Shanks was presented with a plaque, as well as a cake that was shared with her fellow employees.
Talking Book Services provides library services to anyone in the state of Mississippi who has a physical impairment, a visual impairment, or a learning disability. We are part of a national network of libraries that partner with the Library of Congress's National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. Anyone in the United States and the Virgin Islands can receive this free service. We provide digital audio books and magazines (that are played on a special digital player that we provide), Braille books and magazines, downloadable books, and an app to download books to your smartphone.
