About SHARKEY-ISSAQUENA COUNTY LIBRARY

Background
From 1967 until 2004, South Delta Library Services consisted of Yazoo County (Ricks Memorial Library) and Sharkey and Issaquena Counties (Sharkey-Issaquena County Library), which joined together for shared library services in the South Delta area. Sharkey-Issaquena County Library became an independent entity on October 1, 2004.

Community Profile
The Sharkey-Issaquena County Library serves a two-county area covering 841 square miles with a combined population of 8,854 citizens. The communities that are part of the area have a rich heritage of the land, a sense of community, and the strength of the people who live there. The Blues, as well as the history of the “Teddy Bear,” can be traced to these two counties.
