Thanks to Reader To Reader They are Reading Books!

Dear Mr. Mazor,

The Noxubee County Public Library Board of Trustees and I want to thank you and Reader to Reader for the excellent books that you have sent to us. Our patrons have really enjoyed the books, especially the hard backs and paperbacks of adult fiction. They have asked me to keep the westerns, mystery, cookbooks, biographies and romance books coming. It has helped bring back some of our adult readers to the library.

The smaller children have enjoyed the books and are looking forward to reading the new books. They enjoy easy fiction - 1st to 3rd grade books. We even have some of the ages 8-12 years old enjoying reading.

Noxubee County Library is in a rural area and sometimes it is hard for us to get the people into the library and to get them to read the different types of books that we offer, but thanks to Reader to Reader they are READING BOOKS!

Thank you for the help to our patrons to better themselves for the future.

Sincerely Yours,
Miss Judy E. Proffitt, Acting Director
Noxubee County Public Library
Macon Mississippi

Some history on the library:

“Erected in 1907 as the county jail, this three-storied brick structure was built in the Romanesque style of architecture. It was used as a place of incarceration for seventy years before being abandoned.

In 1982 a group of interested citizens began a fund-raising project to restore the property and to have the building listed on the National Register of Historic Places and to be declared a Mississippi Landmark, both distinctions insuring a protected status.”
