Final new space planning for Jackson Parish Library introduced

It is common knowledge that he Jonesboro and Chatham branches of the Jackson Parish Library (JPL) has some of the most user friendly layouts that you could want. Asking you to forgive the “slang” grammer, You ain’t seen nothin yet!

Recently JPL Director Floyd Knox received the recommendations for an improved space planning project that has been submitted by the Architectural Firm, Coco and Associates. The plan that is expected to go into effect this calendar year not only rededicates space in the library to allow for included programs but provides outdoor improvements as well. 

No stone was left unturned when attempting to improve the mechanical capability of the library, logistical use of the space available and overall inside and outside asthetics. An outdoor interactive playground has been added  and even the bookmobile is getting a new home. Over the next several weeks the Jackson Parish Journal is going to take a close look at all the improvements that can be expected.

Betty Decou and Charlotte Bailey enjoy book signing on Tuesday! Connor Worthington was the winner of the drawing for “My Best Friend Murgatroyd” the book written by Jonesboro native, Mrs. Betty DeCou and illustrated by Charlotte Bailey. If you missed the book signing and would like to purchase either this book for a cost of $18.00 or the first the two collabortated on entitled The Adventures of the Tree Sprites, contact Joanna @ 318-259-5697.
