This library was begun as a traveling collection and was later combined and stored in the Eudora Welty Library in Jackson. When the Carriage House was built in 2000, provision was made for the Library Collection and it was moved at that time to Natchez. Our collection is comprised of some original materials from that traveling library and other donations from members and friends. Additions are made to the collection several times a year.

While there is no usage fee, donations are always welcome. Copies are available for a small fee.

Users should note that a CheckPoint security system is in use, and those with pacemakers should notify gift shop staff before entering the Library.

When you visit, please take a moment to sign our guest registry. It is our hope that users will find the collection useful and return for further searches.
