New Library Park at Jonesboro Branch taking shape

At this rate it won’t be long before coming to the Jonesboro Branch of the Jackson Parish Library will
mean educational entertainment inside and out. Just a few weeks ago the final contract papers on the
Library Park and Inclusive Playground were signed but if you drive by the park location behind the
Jonesboro Branch you will already see the retaining wall and earthwork nearly completed.

“We are very pleased with the speed that things are coming along at,” said Jackson Parish Library
Director Floyd Knox. “Hopefully the weather will continue to cooperate and soon our patrons will get to
enjoy this creative addition.”

  1. Just heard about the library park. How do we make a donation. I live in Arizona now, but my sisters and I were raised in a home on that land and sold it to the library many years ago. Any info would help. Thanks, Jimmie Nell Gaines Watts

    My baby sister still lives in Jonesboro, Sharon Runyon, but didn’t have much info for me. Thanks for your help.

    • I have forwarded your comment and request to Angela Walsworth, who is the Jackson Parish Library, Jonesboro Branch Manager, and Library Park Project Coordinator. I also followed up with a phone call to her on your behalf and was told that she would get back to you with information on how to make a donation.
