The Rienzi Library has New Books, A New Look and a New Librarian to go along with them
The Northeast Regional Library would like to introduce D.E. Wilson of Booneville as the new branch manager at the Rienzi library. A former entrepreneur, D. E. spent several years living and working in Asia before returning back home. He is happy to now take up the task of ensuring that the people of Rienzi and the rural communities of Prentiss and Alcorn counties have the reading and media materials that they want and need. When not at his desk, you can find D. E. running, travelling or at home with a good book.
D. E. would like to remind everyone that the Rienzi Library is open to the public on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 12:00 – 5:00. He invites all residents of Prentiss and Alcorn counties to pay him a visit, especially those in the communities of Rienzi, Biggersville, Jacinto, Altitude, Thrasher and the surrounding areas. He has new books, and a quiet, quaint, distraction-free place to read them, just a leisurely drive away at 5 School St. in Rienzi. One of D. E.’s first acts as librarian was to give the exterior of the library a much-needed update by repainting the front doors.
According to Wilson, “The role of libraries in our increasingly connected and complex world has changed. We are no longer book repositories; libraries are service centers for entire communities. We are resource hubs where a citizen of a community (especially rural communities where every educational resource counts) can come to ask questions, become immersed in the collected thoughts and experiences of humanity, be introduced to educational resources, discover more about how we are connected and even discover the latest movies in our digital media section.”
