Marshall County Goes Bookish with LSTA Funds

Potts Camp Public Library
The Marshall County Library System, headquartered in Holly Springs, used LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) grant funds to purchase new fiction books for their two rural branch libraries. Citizens in the communities of Potts Camp and Byhalia rely heavily on their local public libraries to provide many services, just one of which is offering new and popular fiction books. Due to the reductions in both state and federal funding, the library system has had to drastically cut its book and materials budget in order not to reduce library hours or eliminate staff. Without this grant, these two branches would not be able to offer the latest titles on the bestseller lists that their patrons find so popular. A variety of books were purchased which appeal to many readers, juvenile to adult.
