Flowood REads

The Central Mississippi Regional Library System is a four county , twenty branch library system serving nearly     200,000 patrons across Rankin, Scott, Simpson, and Smith Counties.

The G. Chastaine Flynt Memorial Library is located within the City of Flowood and is part of CMRLS. 

For more information:  

Central Mississippi Regional Library System, The Friends of Flowood Library, and the City of Flowood are proud to introduce the first of many annual events centered around both a New York Times best selling novel and our unique community. 

Based on the American Library Association's One Book, One Community project designed to enhance communities through literacy, Flowood Reads is a city wide book experience, designed to move readers beyond the book and upcoming film and into a community of like minded individuals.

Starting in September 2016, the community will be welcomed to the library and introduced to our first city wide read: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

And then...the real adventure begins.

Enjoy the Ride
