A Village Post Office opens in Brooks

The United States Postal Service has opened up a Village Post Office in Brooks. The concept is new and Brooks is the sixth site in Georgia to receive the new service. The plan is to have just over 50 in the state by the end of the year.

One of the reasons is the diminishing hours at a number of local post offices. The Brooks Post Office, for instance, closes at 4 p.m.

The Brooks Library was chosen for this additional site and will be selling stamps as well as priority envelopes being available.

Brooks Mayor Dan Langford commented that the town was honored to be one of the first Village sites. “We look forward,” he said, “to be able to be able to offer additional services to our community.”

On hand for the occasion was USPS representative Kris Payne; Kim Morris, Brooks librarian; Cindy Winkle, Brooks town clerk; and Sonya Stevens, Brooks postmaster.

The library hours are Tuesday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. It is closed Sunday and Monday.

The new service is for sales only; you will need to drop your outgoing mail in the appropriate mail pick-up boxes.



lost 1.3 billion buckaroos in the first 3 months of this year.

Less than 550 people live in Brooks.

Now, 2 post offices.

Wowza, these sales (only) locations should put them over the top in about 450 years, give or take a few hundred (years or people, you decide).

Why when you can order stamps and boxes from your local carrier..If anything it would be nice to have later drop can buy stamps at publix for goodness sakes
