The Eudora Welty Library And Friends

I love libraries, I have always loved them.  As a child my weekly trip to the library was a highlight.  I borrowed as many books as they would allow me to take out and was always ready the next week for a new stash.  I even had a stint working in the library while I was in college.

My sentiments exactly…

The “friends” exist to stimulate the use of the library and to support development, encourage gifts and cooperate in developing services for the community.

I enjoyed my recent visit to the Eudora Welty Library and took the time to walk through the Mississippi Writer’s Room…

The room opened in May of 1991…

I can’t help but wonder what Miss Welty would think about me superimposed there on her picture pointing my trusty I phone camera!   I suspect she would have embraced the technology as I have!

The Mississippi Writer’s Room is a tribute to the state’s wealth of writers, playwrights and poets who have called this place home…
