Library seeks funding from municipality for FY15
A budget request from First Regional Library was one of the only items on the Board of Aldermen’s agenda on June 17. Members of the organization requested $37,000 for the next fiscal year to operate Robert C. Irwin Library in the town of Tunica.
Head Librarian Ruth Harris introduced First Regional Library Director Ed Hughes, who has just recently taken the job.
“I am happy to be here,” Hughes told aldermen and Mayor Chuck Cariker. “You have a great series of libraries.”
After Hughes’s remarks, Harris announced that her position in Tunica is open, as she will soon transfer to the FRL branch in Walls.
“I do look forward to a shorter commute, but I will definitely miss this library and town,” Harris said. “The R.C. Irwin Library was built to serve the town and county and it has been able to meet that challenge.”
