Holiday Ideas from the Library

by Ben Loftis

Director, Union County Carnegie Library


The holiday season is clearly upon us, which means parties to attend and presents to buy.  In recent years, tablets and e-readers have become popular gifts, and that trend is likely to continue.  At the library, we value access to technology, and handheld devices with internet access (whether smart phones, tablets, or e-readers) are great tools that provide easy access to a world of information. 

As many are likely to receive a tablet or e-reader this year, I want to take the opportunity to remind you of some of the services the library offers that will put these devices to good use.  Many patrons have already taken advantage of the library’s membership in the Jasmine Overdrive consortium.  Through Jasmine, you have access to thousands of e-books and e-audiobooks to download for free.  All you need is a library card, and you can begin downloading.  You do not even have to worry about the returning the book on time, the system will delete the book when the circulation period ends. 

Similar to Overdrive, the library also offers Zinio for magazine downloads.  The library makes available a collection of 43 different titles including ESPN the Magazine, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Reader’s Digest, and more.  Take a few minutes to create an account and you can begin downloading current or recent back issues of a variety of magazines.  With Zinio, you can keep the magazines as long as you would like and you never need to return them.

Finally, the South Carolina State Library has purchased a state-wide subscription to Mango languages.  Whether you need to learn a language for work or school, are travelling abroad, or just want to learn a new language for fun, Mango Languages offers access to 64 languages (including English as a second language) as well as 20 foreign films to expose viewers to both the language and culture of other nations.

Of course, DISCUS is still available through the State Library as well and features numerous databases on a variety of topics including auto repair, academic and medical searches, numerous newspapers from around the world, and suggestions for future reading.

Each of these resources is available on the homepage of the library’s website,  Simply choose the service you are looking for and follow the instructions to create an account.  For many, you will need a library card, so be sure to stop by the library and obtain a card or renew an old one you may have, all you need is to bring a picture ID.  New library cards are free to all residents, employees, and students in Union County.    


UNION — The Friends of the Union County Carnegie Library have donated $5,000 to the Library Renovation Project.  The donation will be used for a building project the library seeks to undergo which will ‘Renovate, Restore, and Complete’ the Carnegie Library.  Debby Green, President of the Friends of the Library stated "the library is one of Union's most essential resources. The Friends are pleased to donate to the renovation project and encourage other civic organizations and individuals to consider donating to such a worthy endeavor."

The restoration of the building will focus on the historic, original area of the library and will include cleaning of the tin ceiling and stained glass under the dome, the reopening of the original front doors (currently blocked by computers), and improved access to the dome for cleaning and maintenance purposes.  The completion of the library will focus on the currently unfinished basement, which will make that space usable by housing a meeting room, conference room, staff and storage areas, and reconfiguring the current level to maximize space in a facility that is quickly seeing limited additional space for new materials. Overall, this project will allow the library to maximize its space (and add more than 4,000 usable square feet of new space), become safer and more comfortable, and restore the original beauty of the historic Beau-Arts structure.

The project to renovate and restore the Library will cost a total of approximately $2 million.  Thanks to the efforts of Sen. Harvey Peeler and Rep. Mike Anthony, the library was able to receive $1.25 million.

Library Director Ben Loftis was appreciative of the gift from the Friends.  “We are grateful for the continuing support of the Friends in providing this gift.”

To make a donation, send checks made payable to Union County Carnegie Library Renovation Project, 300 E. South St., Union, SC 29379, Attention:  Ben Loftis, Director.
