Ms. Jones says that she loves her job and finds it to be both challenging and rewarding. "Some of it is routine, but a lot of the periodical information changes quite a bit. You have to pay close attention. It keeps me on my toes!" When asked her opinion of libraries after working in one for nearly 30 years, Connie had the following to say, "Libraries are a great way for people to connect with the outside world. They have books and information on every subject and they'll get you what you need if they don't have it. You can travel across the entire globe without ever leaving the library." She added that many people don't realize that libraries provide such great services. "Free computers! And Interlibrary Loan! These are perfect for people on a budget."
Connie loves to read, her favorite subject being fiction and nonfiction books about Christianity and religion. She's currently studying the book of Ephesians and supplementing her learning with books owned by MLC. Ms. Jones enjoys spending time with her three children and six grandchildren, many of whom live here in the Jackson Metro. She also likes to attend church, and when time permits, sings with the choir and is involved with other church activities.
