That's a wrap.....

Well, that's a wrap for the SC State Library's Annual Photo Contest. Our library walked away with three wins - "Best Overall" (shown), Most Humorous" and "Honorable Mention." Are we proud?? You betcha!!

We celebrate our library not with awards, but with the daily interactions that are depicted in these photos. We strive, daily, to offer a welcoming environment that encourages curiosity and life long learning.

We are pleased as punch that we won this annual contest, but we remember, always, that our patrons are our most important mission.

Give a hoot - lobby your local representatives to stabilize library funding. Your librarians need you!!

Working in the library

Randy Burns the Lee County reporter for the Sumter Daily Item has started using the library to file his stories. We all think this is super cool, because we love Randy, we love The Item and they both give us great coverage for our events and fundraisers!!!

Thanks guys.

Now this looks like fun......

With all the youngsters out on spring break it seemed like a good time to open the annex in the afternoons for some gaming fun.

In the clip above, the kids are knocking themselves out playing "Rock Bank."

Just another day at South Carolina's finest library!!

Spring Break

The Library Annex will be open in the afternoons all this week for your gaming pleasure. We have Playstation 2's and Wii's all warmed up and ready for your use.

Come down and visit Librarian Brenda, and get your groove on. Will post pictures later.
