A group of citizens have launched a campaign to establish the first Friends of the Richard Wright Library in Jackson, Mississippi on McDowell Road.
Libraries are the most important institutions in a community.
Library Branches continuously need money to buy new books, equipment, and funds to promote library services to get people in the library.
Citizens Spearheading this campaign:
- Meredith C. McGee, Author, South Jackson Business Owner
- Ercilla Hendrix, wife of Ward 6 Councilman Tyrone Hendrix, mother of two
- Starkishia Rountree, Heathcare Professional, Author, mother of four
- Loretha Wallace, Retired South Jackson resident, mother of four, grandmother of eleven
- Timothy Stamps, Stamps Burgers Co-Owner, Jackson
- Jovaunda Smith, Jackson Attorney
- Dorothy “Dot” Benford, Campaign for Hillary Clinton Consultant, Jackson
- Brenda Hyde, Executive Director/Community Educator, Southern Echo
WHAT WE HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH:
We want to increase volunteerism in the City of Jackson’s Library System and to help spearhead fundraising efforts to revitalize the City’s crumbing library services.
Library Branches needs FRIENDS!
