Jackson-Hinds Library System Celebrates the 114th Heavenly Birthday of Eudora Welty

The Jackson Hinds Library System celebrates the 114th Heavenly Birthday of iconic and Pulitzer Prize winning Mississippi writer, Eudora Alice Welty.

“We are excited about the future for a new Eudora Welty Central Library in Downtown Jackson, Mississippi as recently announced by the City of Jackson.” The Administrative Board of Trustees is actively working with the City of Jackson and Hinds County to plan a bright future for the library system.

Council said, I am honored to serve as the Executive Director of Jackson/Hinds Library System during this time in Mississippi history. Salute to our beloved patrons, brilliant library team, Administrative Board of Trustees, City of Jackson, Jackson City Council, Hinds County Board of Supervisors, and the State of Mississippi.

About Jackson Hinds Library System:

We provide public library service to urban metropolitan Jackson and Hinds County Mississippi, the state capital. Our goal is to provide quality service through our 14 locations with a focus on community, education, and digital life. We currently operate under our historic 1986 City/County agreement, but our history dates back to our original Jackson Carnegie Library founding in 1910.
