Summer Readers Meet 'n Greet Salkehatchie Service Members

The Lee County Librarians and the Summer Readers hosted a drop in for the Salkehatchie Service Group last evening at the Library. The young people toured Bishopville; stopping at the Cotton Museum and the Dennis House. Then they walked over to the Library where the Librarian's had prepared light refreshments.

Luckily the Librarians had turned the computers on! These teenagers had been computer deprived for two days and the computer stations were three deep with kids.

Salkehatchie Summer Service is a pioneering service ministry at selected sites in South Carolina. The program involves high school and college age youth, adult community leaders and persons of different cultures in upgrading housing. It also helps motivate community cooperative efforts by helping persons to help themselves, and providing all participants with opportunities for personal growth and service.

We salute these spirited volunteers and thank them for their service to our community.
