County budget cuts have forced the closure of all three public libraries in Perry County.
Libraries in Richton, New Augusta and Beaumont will close their doors Friday afternoon.
Charles Cox, director of the Pine Forest Regional Library System, which operates the libraries, said three employees will lose their jobs.
A post on the Pine Forest Regional Library Facebook Page Says:
Due to no funding from Perry County for the next fiscal year, all Perry County public libraries (Richton, New Augusta and Beaumont) will be CLOSED indefinitely beginning October 1, 2016.
