Library System Getting a Digital Facelift

Kosciusko, MS, January 07, 2015-The Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System (MMRLS) unveiled their new homepage for public use earlier this month. The website is funded in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Mississippi Library Commission.

The new website is completely compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Library users with vision problems will be able to have what is on the screen read to them using screen reader software. The new website was also designed to be “dynamic” in nature. Library customers will be able to access the website on a cellphone, tablet, laptop, or computer.

Some new features added to the new MMRLS homepage include links for library services, teen zone, genealogy questions, Mississippi Library Partnership, and the Mississippi Library Commission. Library users who are looking for our Facebook, Magnolia, Learn-A-Test, Online Reference Databases and other great resources will be able to locate them easily under the new umbrella term link titled electronic resources.

“Our customers become more and more tech savvy every year and the library must adapt to meet the needs of our customers,” said MMRLS web design team staff. “This website redesign project was a team effort on the part of the Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System headquarters staff. During the entire process, our customers’ needs were at the forethought of every decision, as well as the need to raise awareness of all the materials, programming, and services the library provides to the residents of all the local communities we serve”
