Welcome to Vicksburg District Library Online!


To Owe is Human, To Forgive is Divine!

Happy November! November is Kids and Teens Fine Amnesty Month at the Vicksburg District Library. We want to encourage young patrons to use the library and we want to help South County Community Services stock their shelves for the holiday season. How does it work?

1) If you are 17 or under, bring in a non-perishable food item or personal hygiene item.

2) Also bring your library card, school ID, or a parent.

3) Ask the library staff to erase your fines. Please note this amnesty is for fines only, and will not apply to items that are missing or damaged.

Questions? Call us at 649-1648 or email us at

Come Join Us for Story Time Fun!

Next Wednesday, November 19th, local musicians BenJammin and Analisa will be entertaining us during our preschool story time! Everyone is invited! Story time starts at 10:30am. Come join the fun!

Big Changes at the Vicksburg District Library

Goodbye Rachel!


After 18 and a half years, our circulation supervisor Rachel Freeman has decided to retire, “so I have more time to read”, she says.

Rachel has been a part of the Vicksburg District Library for so long that she will be deeply missed.

Rachel ran both a monthly adult book club and monthly knitting club, and was responsible for all adult fiction purchases. She is known for calling library patrons when a new book they would enjoy arrives.

We wish her the very best in all her new endeavors, and will try to only call with questions a few times a day!


Welcome Back, Beth!


Beth Dowson was previously the Teen and Reference librarian at the Vicksburg District Library, but left to pursue work at the Comstock Library.

We are absolutely delighted that she will be able to return to Vicksburg as the Circulation Supervisor to help fill Rachel’s position.

Beth is excited to return to Vicksburg as well, as she cares deeply for the library and has been a frequent volunteer and supporter.

Please stop in and say Hi! to Beth as we welcome her back and make her feel at home.




Website Showcase:

Looking for inspiration on what to read next? Need a way to keep track of what you have read -- and what you would like to read -- that doesn't involve random scraps of paper in various pockets? Check out Through, "Users can sign up and register books to generate library catalogs and reading lists. They can also create their own groups of book suggestions and discussions." (Wikipedia, 2013) is easy to use, and a great way to grow your reading community and "need to read" list.

If you need help with the site, stop on in and we'll be happy to help.



This month's Book Club Pick:

Prepare for December by reading a biography, autobiography or memoir of your choice.

Our next book discussion group will meet Thursday, December 4th at 9 a.m.
