Stories from the Road: Pearl River County

I have such great memories of Hwy 49! My family hails from Covington County, so I have memories of that trip for more years than I care to admit. Some of the best, though, were of trips to the Gulf Coast for family vacations. That road and I go way back.

When Library Consultant Mac Buntin asked me to travel with him to visit Pearl River County Library System, I just couldn't resist a trip down memory lane. Stopping at Shady Acres is worth the trip, not to mention getting a king cake at Paul's Pastry Shop.

The library in Picayune was filled with patrons and bustling with activity. Their Friends Chapter was planning a "Murder Mystery Theater" fundraiser for the following night, so there were many preparations going on for the event.

After a great visit at headquarters in Picayune, we headed to the Poplarville Library (not before a stop at Paul's!) to hear all about their upcoming Summer Library Program. Let's just say that anytime a magician is involved, I'm in! Those kids have a fun summer ahead.

This library is incredibly inviting, and thanks to Branch Manager Denise Davis, it smelled divine because of her love for essential oils. It's a lovely space and you can tell that those who work there love the library.

If you find yourself heading south, stop by one of these great libraries for a visit. They are wonderful folks and will welcome you with open arms.
