As schools and families continue to work to provide education for local children, the Tallahatchie County Library System is reaching out to help.
Both the Charleston and Tutwiler branches will open next week to allow students and families to use their computers and internet to complete assignments.
“We have adjusted our floor plans and have purchased a Wi-Fi extender to ensure that we can meet the needs of the students, “ said Dana Clolinger, president of the library board of trustees. “We have also purchased a new color printer with a financial donation that was made by the Charleston Rotary Club and Sheriff Jimmy Fly and his family.”
If families do not feel comfortable coming into the building, the extender will allow them to remain in their car in the parking lot and still utilize the internet for their device, Clolinger explained.
“We will practice social distancing and will complete thorough cleaning after each child leaves,” shared Angie Etheridge, library director. “We are also asking each child and each parent to wear a face mask for the entire time that they are in the libraries.”
