English told me that he will be having his grand opening in the Fall. We are so glad to see him on Main Street. He is a real asset to our community.

Usually Mr. Dixon brings in pound cakes - but this morning Mr. Gene Smalls brought us this bounty from his home garden. Yep, that big boy is a zucchini. Also got some cukes, tomatoes and yellow squash. Yummmy!!
The librarians are having tomato sandwiches for lunch!!

This partnership between the Lee County Library and Clemson 4H has really been a crowd pleaser. The participants got to make their entire lunch of spaghetti, garlic bread, muffins and iced lemon tea. Of course, then they got to eat the fruits of their labor.
Thanks to Darlas for teaming up with us.
We will be offering classes in making bath salts as well as another cooking class. We are looking forward to opening our Annex in July and starting afternoon sessions using the new PS3 play stations.
Check it out - all the pictures are here: http://tinyurl.com/an26k5

There is a great interview in Time Magazine about the growing value of "Twitter". We at the library have been utilizing this tool for awhile.
It's value was shown to me when I was in Columbia at a meeting at the State Library. During the meeting I was tweeting and that allowed my followers to add their input into the discussion. It added a second layer of discussion and brought a wider audience into what would have been a private exchange. it also gave the event an afterlife on the Web.
If you have not tried this networking tool - try it out. I only wish I new what the NEXT big thing will be!!

Ms. Boyd made arrangements for weekly visits during the Summer. Librarian Brenda Brisbon will be visiting the school each Tuesday during the Summer.
We hope Ms. Boyd will bring the children back soon. They loved the Library and the Librarians loved them. Extra Bonus Points - Dawn and Elizabeth each got a hug from each of the children. Kinda made our day!!
She has parleyed her education and experience to become a respected reporter for WSAV in Savannah GA. She is also Anchor of My Lowcountry 3 on My TV. Holly frequently returns home to Bishopville to visit her family.
Her last trip home, she graciously took the time to come to the Library to have her picture taken for the "Read @ Your Library" campaign.
