Milam Library Renovation
The Max Milam Library is undergoing renovation to improve and expand library services for the Perryville community. Following a brief closing to prepare for remodeling, the library has re-opened to provide limited service from its new meeting room. Services will be offered during regular library hours and will include access to a browsing collection of popular materials, the ability to place and pick up holds from the entire CALS collection, and laptop computers for in-house check-out. This limited service will continue until the entire facility is ready to re-open this summer. For more information, please call 501-889-2554.
