Statements have been made that libraries are an institution of the past. For New Albany’s Jennie Stephens Smith Library that couldn’t be true, because our library has had 36,155 visitors January-August and 60 new library cards were issued the month of August.

Since cuts from the state to Mississippi libraries have been publicized, a grant of $1000 has been received from the Anne J. Stephens Fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis and a donation of $500 from Margaret Ellis Swain. Since Friends of the Jennie Stephens Smith Library is a 501 (c)(3) organization these monies and honorariums and memorials are tax deductible. These donations help the library to maintain our level of service to the community.
