We are excited to announce our “New Book Return” has been installed! You now can return your materials at the front of the building. I would like to thank Kingsley Library Equipment, our Patrons, citizens of Weakley County, our local radio station, local newspapers and others who voted for us in the contest. Check out our Facebook page for pictures of the before and after.
