Into Reading, the 2013 Summer Library Program for children,
drew to a close at all branches as school began once again across
the region. Eighty programs were held in 13 branch libraries with
a total attendance of 2,278. Of the 735 registered children, 549 met
their reading goals and received certificates as the programs ended.
More than 20,000 childrens books and media items were circulated
during the reading program.
The Summer Library Program is sponsored by the Collaborative Summer
Library Program cooperative and administered by the Mississippi Library
The Northeast Regional Library has just completed its semi-annual
Computer Use Survey at the Headquarters library in Corinth and its
branches. Respondents were asked to indicate their age ranges, whether
they had Internet at home, whether they used the librarys electronic
databases and services, and what specific uses they made of the librarys
computers. Of the 1,124 responses, e-mail was the number one use,
with job searches at number two. Entertainment and social networking
(Facebook, etc.) were also high on the list. The age range of the
largest user group was 19 to 45 with 45+ the next largest.
The library administration and staff appreciate the help our users
give us in determining how our computers are used. The data is submitted
annually to the state library agency, the Mississippi Library Commission.
All Mississippi public libraries that offer public access computers
participate in this survey.
