New Shelving for Society's Library

The society's Gaither Spradling Library has been growing and during the past year, the society simply ran out of room to display research material. This month the society installed new library shelving on the east wall of the research room. This new shelving has enabled the society to publicly display the massive journal collection. The society receives quarterlies from many genealogical societies and this new shelving will enable the society to shelve the collection. Other work has been done in the George Poteet History Center, headquarters of the Itawamba Historical including the installation of new furniture in the Gordon McFerrin Assembly Hall, where monthly meetings are held. All work of the society depends entirely upon membership dues and donations, and the society would like to thank all the supporters of the organization who make our work easier in preserving and promoting the rich history and heritage of Itawamba County.

This is truly wonderful news! For those who may not have been to the society to do research, they have a wonderful library! Be sure to include it in your Itawamba research plans!

Thanks for the comments Lori. The society works hard with trying to provide research material for The Gaither Spradling Library.
