Book Brigade Buddies to move the last of the library books

Jackson County residents who love the public library are called to join Book Brigade Buddies and help move the last of the library books up the hill to the new facility. At 10:45 a.m. on Saturday, May 21, residents are asked to gather in front of the current library to form a line which will stretch up the courthouse steps and into the main entrance of the new Jackson County Public Library.

After the Book Brigade Buddies complete their task, the current library at 755 West Main Street will be closed permanently.
