One more week.....

Plan on joining us!!

It’s that time of year again! The 17th Annual SC Book Festival is being held at the Columbia Convention Center on May 17th -19th. This is a great family day in Columbia. There are book dealers, author talks and a wonderful children’s exhibit with puppets, plays, music and general silliness. The children will love it. The Lee County Library will be represented and in past years we have met CJ Box, Scott Turow, Mary Alice Monroe and my personal favorite Pat Conroy. If you have never been, make plans to come this year. I know you will have a great time. I hope to see you there.

This year, Mr. Conroy will be back along with his wife, Cassandra King. Also attending will be Mary Kay Andrews (Savannah Breeze), Dori Sanders (Clover) and Mrs. Frances Ginsberg’s sister in law Nathalie Dupree, author of several popular Southern cookbooks. Director Dawn mentioned that she was excited about Patti Callahan Henry – we have several of her books on the shelf. We will be purchasing any new releases that the authors have written, and hopefully have them signed.

It’s Book – a –palooza at the Library!  We have had a huge donation of books down at the Annex, and we have NO room for them.  Therefore we will be having a HUGE book sale starting on Wednesday June 5th to Friday June 7th.  Make plans to come to the Library Annex and take advantage of this opportunity to stock up.  We have priced all the books to GO.  So mark your calendars now and plan to join us.

New and improved.........

Okay, Update on 'lil 'ol Lee County Library.

I am still working on the new website. Will be up and running soon! Meanwhile, some county citizens are organizing a community event calendar and I have linked it here on our blog. (Third link on the right.)

If your local organization would like to post an event please contact me at the e-mail listed.

The main purpose of this calendar is to help organizations plan their events so that they do not overlap.

Right now, we have a limited number of administrators. If your organization would like to name an individual as administrator; giving them the authority to post contact me, Don Mathis or Retta Tindal.

Will try to be more consistent in posting, but really, I want to get the website done!!
