Dear Friends In Christ,
What could only be described as an evening of splendor will be experienced on August 23 at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary of the Union Presbyterian Church.
The church will present Hannah Powell, a second year Master’s Degree Student at Converse College, in recital. Ms. Powell, a Laurens native, has served as the church’s pianist and organist for more than a year now. She will be accompanied by Mrs. Kathleen Berry Read, wife of Rev. Sanders Read. Mrs. Read is a local musician and piano teacher.
Hannah began her ministry at Union Presbyterian just as she was graduating with her Bachelor’s degree from Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Hannah also studied at the Brevard Music Center. The Union Presbyterian Church feels fortunate and blessed to have someone of Hannah’s talent and ability to be a part of the fellowship of the congregation. She fits perfectively into the mission of the church to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ through outreach programs that utilize various mediums.
This recital is just one of the programs and activities that are anticipated by the congregation since the church has undergone some major changes. More than a year ago the congregation voted to withdraw from the Presbyterian Church USA and unite with ECO which is described as a Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
The organization was determined to be a better reflection of the morals and values in the Union Community. Since the change there has been a greater commitment to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the community. All in the community and surrounding areas are invited to come to the free recital at the Union Presbyterian Church, located at 100 West South Street, Union, S.C. It promises to be an unforgettable experience!

Union, SC – The Union County Library System is preparing for the grand re-opening of the renovated and historically restored Carnegie Library on September 8th!
The library is looking forward to re-opening the Carnegie on Saturday, September 8th. The entire community is welcomed and encouraged to attend this historical celebratory event! We will begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2pm on the front lawn, and are excited to announce our Keynote Speaker is Marjory Wentworth, Poet Laureate of South Carolina. The library is also thrilled to announce we are one of three places in the United States debuting a new national Smithsonian traveling exhibit titled Crossroads: Change in Rural America. Crossroads explores how rural American communities changed in the 20th century, and examines how America’s small towns continue to creatively focus on new opportunities for growth and development. The exhibition is part of Museum on Main Street, a unique collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), state humanities councils across the nation, and local host institutions. The Carnegie Library is one of six institutions to host the exhibit in South Carolina, and Crossroads will be on display at the library from September 8-October 21. To learn more about Crossroads and other Museum on Main Street exhibitions, visit www.museumonmainstreet.org. Support for MoMS has been provided by the U.S. Congress.
Sadly, the library does not currently have adequate resources to continue staffing our satellite locations and relocate and operate the Carnegie Library. The Jonesville satellite location, located at the Jonesville Town Hall Senior Center, will be closed both Wednesday, August 15th and Thursday, August 16th. Friday, August 17th, is the last day all satellite locations will be staffed with a library employee. Public computers and self-checkout kiosks will remain in all satellite locations to allow for checkout of requested materials, which will be delivered weekly to each location. Anyone who requests materials through SCLENDS is encouraged to check with the mayoral clerks in Carlisle and Jonesville, and with Jacob’s Well staff in Lockhart to receive their requested materials. To search the catalog and place items on hold, visit https://sclends.lib.sc.us. Once you have found an item to place on hold, simply select either Carlisle, Jonesville, Lockhart, or the Carnegie Library as your desired pickup location.
Serving all of Union County is important to the library, and we will continue to do what we are able with the resources we have. The library is hiring a full-time Programs and Outreach Coordinator to provide programs and services throughout the county. Interested applicants must submit a resume, cover letter, 3 references, and a Union County Library System Employment Application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
