Meet our Trainer: Kim Harvey


Kimberly Harvey, staff development and training coordinator, was hired in 2014. She will also be leading computer training classes for the public offered each month at area libraries.

Her education includes an Associate’s Degree from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in 2004, a Bachelor’s Degree in English Education from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2007, and has over 20 years of experience working with technology and training.

Did you know we have computers for preschool and school-age children made just for learning?


Early Literacy Station™ (ELS) computer stations with over 55 educational software titles for children are available at every branch.

The Children’s station offers a safe, standalone computer not connected to the Internet that is age-appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children. The ELS has a colorful keyboard and tiny mouse to promote easy learning and self discovery.
