Hattiesburg Public Library welcomes all age groups

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) – Are you looking for a day of family fun or just want to fill your day with learning?

The Hattiesburg Public Library has what you’re looking for, and the best part is that it’s all free.

The library will host its summer reading programs for the months of June and July. Free movies are offered every Monday at 10:30 am.

Deborah White, Youth Services Librarian, says the library offers a variety of programs ranging from story time at daycare to family game night.

“Obviously it’s really, really hot this summer, so we want to invite everyone to come to our programs where it’s nice and cool in the library,” White said. “We have all kinds of things for all age groups, whether you want to hang out with us, do crafts, come to story time, watch movies, attend book clubs (or ) discuss movies.”

Plus, Thursday Theater is back in action! Every Thursday at 2 p.m., selected films will be screened. White encourages everyone in the community to get out and participate.

“You don’t need to have a library card with us to attend programs,” White said. “We have something for everyone here.”

The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science will visit the Hattiesburg and Petal Libraries this Wednesday and Thursday at 10 a.m.
