The Pearl River County Library System has decided to jump into the virtual world with a blog dedicated to all of the children in our community. Here you can find stories, activities, crafts, and more to share with your children! Click the white menu button in the top left corner of the webpage to explore everything we offer.

I would like to introduce ourselves. I am Megan Miller, and I run the children’s programs at the Margaret Reed Crosby Memorial Library, and my co-worker, Angela Gatskie, runs the children’s programs at the Poplarville Public Library.

Due to current circumstances, we are currently working on bringing virtual programming to our county, and this is our starting point. In the next few weeks, we will be sharing video story times, along with other activities and other videos to enjoy. Also join us on Facebook, Pearl River County Library System, and keep an eye out for our Facebook group: PRCLS Online Kids Club.
