About Main Street Books

Ever since 2002, Main Street Books has offered a place for the community to read, gather, and give back. Though they started as a humble bookstore, they have since decided to add pottery classes to their business via The Wheel in the Window Pottery Studio.

And, you may also know them through their charitable efforts! Not only are they responsible for the  Empty Bowls program in Hattiesburg, but they also created the “Give a Child a Book” program in 2018.
