Community Library Initiative GoalsThe beginning: I love Richard Wright Library Originally, a group of citizens attempted to create the first ever Friends of the Richard Wright Library in South Jackson. Friends Groups are volunteer boards charged with the task of raising funds for library branches to purchase books, equipment, and furnishing.

A Jackson Hinds Library System policy prevented the volunteer board from forming. Therefore, these concerned citizens launched this Initiative to create an independent library system which will empower disadvantaged children by developing their intellect through diverse library reading programs, activities, and services.

    I saw a parent in the mall last night and invited her to download the “My first 1 ot 5 activity book” for her son. I told her the book will get him to write down his home address, teach him his first five numbers in Spanish, and allow him to color as he learns. She smiled and told me, “That’s what he needs at home.”

    I met a young mother in Jackson, Mississippi in front of Boost Mobile Saturday who said she reads to her two year old child. Awesome! because reading to babies offers multiple benefits to them.

      Help us collect 1,000 surveys. We have 300 surveys/questionnaires; we need 700 more. It only takes three minutes to complete a survey online. The data is helping us determine the household library needs of families living in the Jackson Metropolitan area.

    I tried the “My 1 to 5 Activity Book” and “My A to G Activity Book” for my 4 and 5 year and they loved it. They both sign the Mississippi Song every day. They even learned our home address.
