In 1970 the MMRLS board voted to join with a library demonstration in Carroll County. The following year this county became a part of the regional system. Carroll County eventually formed a separate system, the Carroll County Library System, officially leaving MMRLS in 1978. Initial staff included a director with a librarian at each branch. Mrs. Mary Storer Jones, who had been serving as Attala County librarian, became the system’s first regional director.

A regional library is larger so it has more space for programs like YOUmedia and homework help. It can house larger collections so if a branch doesn’t have a book you need right away, chances are your regional library carries it. And, it’s open longer with a larger staff to help residents. Through 20 locations, targeted outreach and online, the Library delivers exceptional services and programs, with a mission to improve lives and build a stronger community.
