LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The residents of Lamar County now have a Little Free Library of their own. A ribbon cutting event was held Tuesday afternoon at 4 p.m.

The Junior Auxiliary of Hattiesburg's Crown Club teamed up with a local builder and built their own Little Free Library and placed it near the playground at the Oak Grove Optimist Park. The library is located at 345 Hegwood Drive.

The books inside are meant for people of all ages and anyone is welcome to take a book and maybe leave one in return if possible.

"Little Free Library is something that's readily available in downtown and even into the mid-town area but it's not something that's available in Lamar county,” said Lesley Sanders Wood, Junior Auxiliary Crown Club. “So, it's something that we really wanted to bring further out west for the people that live in those areas as well."

The young ladies of the Crown Club designed and supplied the books for this project.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
