HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Another restaurant in town has established a reading lounge for children.
O'Charley's in Hattiesburg is the second restaurant in town to have a reading lounge for children
as part of a new city education initiative.
The restaurant manager believes it is a good way to give back to the community and encourages other food establishments around the city to get on board with the idea of having books for for kids to read while dining.
"We're going to have another ribbon cutting next week at another Burger King location," Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree said. "O'Charley's was willing to come aboard and do the same thing here. Because they understand that as the manager said, this is giving back to the community (and) allowing O'Charley's to participate in making our community a better place to live."
