The Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System became a regional multi-county public library system in 1957. It is a tax-supported, 501(c)(3) public library organization that serves the five county areas of Attala, Holmes, Leake, Montgomery, and Winston. The 13 public libraries within this five county library system provide services for over 94,000 customers.

We have centralized libraries in Attala County (Kosciusko) and Winston County (Louisville).

There are two public libraries in Leake County located in Carthage and Walnut Grove.

Three public libraries serve Montgomery County at Duck Hill, Kilmichael, and Winona.

Six public libraries are located in Holmes County in the cities and towns of Durant, Goodman, Lexington, Pickens, Tchula, and West.

Mid-Mississippi libraries deliver measurable results in public information services. MMRLS operates with the highest level of ethics and honesty to provide opportunities to meet, communicate, collaborate, and partner with the information industry and the business community. The library staff is dedicated to our customers, cheerfully assisting with a wealth of information available throughout our public libraries.
