Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Lee County Library are in the planning stages for a book sale scheduled April 16th and April 17th. Last years book sale was a great success. This year we have even a wider selection of gently used and new books. This a great time to look for bargains and pick up your favorite authors to enhance your library!

New Release shelf,,,,,

If you haven’t visited the Library lately and are looking for some newly released books this is the time to come down. Our new release shelf is bursting with books that we have just received. Librarian Missy has been cataloging all week. It’s good to know, also, that if you would like a new release book that you do not see, we can put your request on our “wish list” and order it for you!!

And the Winner Is........

Ms Pamela Nelson won our Valentine Raffle for a specially made Candycake. Librarian Brenda Brisbon graciously donated one of her creations to help support the "Care Center" in Bishopville.

Thanks Brenda!

Again, this was a win/win for our community.

Social Networking......

Blue and white

Isn't that a great picture? The picture was taken by Ashlie, my newest contact on Flickr. I 'met" A on Twittter - another social networking site.

Social networking is a way to expand horizons. Most likely I would not have met A - or several other interesting people without social networking. Given the age and location difference there is little way we could have met without the benefit of social networking.

There have been a lot of false/misleading reports about social networking. Like anything else, it come with its own inherent dangers, but if you are and adult responsible person, the concept opens doors that are not available anywhere else.

Hope you have enjoyed the picture. Thanks, A.
