From press reports

 

Have you recently been faced with the need to grow your skill level in order to gain the job you desire, get into the college you prefer, or learn more about technology? Have you considered your local Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System (MMRLS) branch to be the resource you can use to reach your personal goals?

The Winston County Library not only houses print resources that have been well-vetted for accurate information but it also has an extensive collection of reliable online electronic resources as well.

By visiting the website www.mmrls.lib.ms.us, customers of the Winston County Library are able to access these resources from any internet capable device 24/7 from any location. Access to the online electronic resources spanning various subjects, scholarly academic journals, and skills enhancement materials can all be located on the homepage of the Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System.

Whether it is Magnolia, a database of scholarly articles which are taken from newspapers, magazines, and academic journals to meet your research needs, Learn-a-Test, Facts on File online reference databases and the Computer and Job skills tutorials to meet your educational/informational needs, or Axis 360 e-books which meet your leisure needs, the MMRLS electronic resources your local library offers provide you with the means to reach your personal goals.

“Our library offers so many free on-line database services that help people practice for the GED, ACT, ASVAB test and many more. These services provide sources for research and term papers and provide online tutoring for students. You can access these databases (Facts on File, Magnolia and Learn-A-Test) from the library, from home, or from your smart phone or laptop – and it’s all free! More and more people are learning that we offer free e-Books through the library. One customer told me that she ‘loves the e-books because if she runs out of something to read and can’t get to the library, she can just download an e-Book’.” said Beth Edwards, Winston County Library Branch Manager.

Some electronic resources offered require you to have a Mid-Mississippi Regional Library System library card and 4 digit pin number (which you can obtain by visiting your local branch) or an access code in order to use the online services from any location other than inside your local library. Please contact your local MMRLS library branch for more information.

Expand your knowledge today by visiting the Winston County Library and the website www.mmrls.lib.ms.us to see what your entire local library has to offer.
