LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Children who visit the Laurel-Jones County Library will have a more enjoyable and productive learning experience, thanks to the efforts of the Leadership Jones County organization.

They've donated $5,000 worth of new, kid-sized tables, chairs, computer desks and other items to the children's department at the library.

Thursday, the public was invited to see the improvements.

"We wanted to create more of an environment for the kids, not just an area," said Michael McKinnon, a member of Leadership Jones County. "We wished we could have done more, but having seen all the kids playing this morning and having such a good time, we feel like it was absolutely a home run," McKinnon said.  

"It's much more kid-friendly," said Mary Louise Breland, director of the Laurel-Jones County Library System. "Everybody has got a chair now that they can fit in and the computer tables are wonderful," Breland said.
