MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Shelby County government organization is offering to help people around the county find out how to use their services, which could include assistance on regular expenses like utilities, rent and prescriptions.

The Shelby County Community Services Agency said Wednesday they will be setting up a booth at Memphis' North Branch Library, 1192 Vollintine Avenue, every first and third Thursdays of the month until December 15 to help people find out more about what they offer. 

Here are the dates:
