James “Cal” Forbes

James “Cal” Forbes helps a customer sign up for a library card at the Starkville Public Library.

The book collection at the Starkville Public Library is not the only area expanding in the building. 

This month, the library welcomed James “Cal” Forbes as its circulation coordinator. 

Two years ago, Forbes worked at the library as a book shelver after his move to Starkville from Houston, Tennessee in order to be closer to his grandparents. 

“I love to read and write so when I was looking for a job after moving here it made sense to work with a library,” Forbes said.

While he loved his position at the library, Forbes took a leave from his position after a year and a half in order to attend Mississippi State University where he graduated this past May with a bachelor’s degree in communications.
