The Story

Pontotoc, MS

Pontotoc County Library located in Pontotoc, Mississippi is a part of the Dixie Regional Library System. The regional library system serves a population of 62,311 in three rural counties in Northeast Mississippi which includes Pontotoc County. With a growing population of people over the age of 65, the Pontotoc County Library has long maintained a collection of large print books for readers with impaired vision. “Often as we age, vision problems occur making reading difficult,” said Regina Graham, Director of the Dixie Regional Library System.

Budget woes due to state funding cuts have limited the library’s ability to purchase large print books and other materials. Unable to buy new books, the library must rely on donations to expand their overall collection. “We often receive donations of regular print books, but this is not the case for large print titles,” said Regina.

The Pontotoc County Friends of the Library group would like to raise $500 through Red Basket to purchase new large print books. “Purchasing large print books helps us maintain a collection that is accessible to everyone,” Regina said. By making a tax-deductible donation, you will provide an opportunity for those who have visual limitations to experience the joy of reading! Donate and share today!
