Mid-MS Regional Library System Offers New Library App

Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System (MMRLS) is excited to announce the launch of the new MidMissLib app available for both Apple and Android mobile devices. Library customers can visit the iOS or Google Play app stores, search for “Mid-Mississippi Library System” to download the free app and connect with their local MMRLS library in new ways.

The MidMissLib app lets patrons have a more streamlined approach to using their library 24/7. Once downloaded, library guests can search and request items directly from their smartphone or tablet, access a digital version of their library card, explore digital library content, and receive notifications for upcoming library events. Additionally, patrons can manage their library account info, check due dates, and renew their items.

“We continue to seek ways to connect with our guests and make the library more accessible to everybody. Our new app offers a modernized way for our patrons to use the library from their mobile devices at their convenience while on the go or from the comfort of their homes,” said Josh Haidet, Executive Director.

For more information about all library services, call or visit your local MMRLS branch library or the library’s website at: midmisslib.com. All library services are made possible thanks to the continued financial support of our local elected officials.

Mid-MS Regional Library System Goes Mobile

 The Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System (MMRLS) has received over $41,000.00 in grant funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Mississippi Library Commission to provide mobile library services to Attala, Holmes, Leake, Montgomery, and Winston Counties. A new eighteen-foot-long customized mobile library vehicle will deliver materials, technology, and programming to communities and institutions with limited access to library resources, or to those who may want more convenience in receiving library services.

The mobile library will house hundreds of items available for checkout, including books and DVDs for all ages. Mobile library staff members will be able to provide programming, reference services, and even sign patrons up for a library card. The library system plans to offer additional services on the vehicle in the future, such as WIFI, wireless printing, and more.

MMRLS is seeking to partner with institutions throughout its service area to provide mobile library services by scheduling regular visits to local long-term care and senior living facilities, schools, daycares, and other community organizations. The library also plans to visit local festivals and other events. Those interested in scheduling a visit can contact their local branch library location or visit: midmisslib.com/mobilelibrary.

“Our new mobile library will offer our patrons almost anything they could get from a physical library building,” said Josh Haidet, MMRLS Executive Director. “Our thirteen branch locations do a wonderful job serving our communities. We are excited to now have the ability to bring our services beyond the walls of our physical buildings to any location throughout our five-county service area.”

For more information about all library services, call or visit your local MMRLS branch library or the library’s website at: midmisslib.com. All library services are made possible thanks to the continued financial support of our local elected officials.
