The Community Prayer Meeting will not be held in August because of the increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases in Union County.  All are urged to take every precaution to avoid the virus: wash hands thoroughly and frequently, wear masks, avoid crowds – and PRAY!
    Please take time on August 6 – and every day – to pray.  Our nation is in great need of prayer.  As always, the greatest need is for revival in the churches and salvation for the lost.  Pray for direction and strength for our pastors and church leaders in these difficult days.
     Our country is deeply divided and under attack, not from peaceful protestors, but from violent mobs stirred up by forces intent on destroying the values and institutions which have made us great.  We need to pray for correction of the injustices in our system, for healing of the racism, and for those who are victims of injustice.  We need to pray that our law enforcers will be fair and not use excessive force.  At the same time, we need to pray for their protection as they risk their lives to keep us safe.
     Please pray for an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Pray for those who get the virus, and for the healthcare workers exposed to it.  Pray for those suffering spiritually and emotionally, those in economic distress for lack of jobs, and those who are unable to get the usual medical care.  Pray for a safe and effective vaccine to be developed soon.  Pray for the safe reopening of businesses and the recovery of our economy.
     In all of these things, please pray for our president and all of our leaders, that God will give them wisdom and courage to know and do what’s needed and what’s right as they grapple with all the issues we are facing. And pray for their protection.
     As always, let us pray for those with health problems and bereavement and other personal problems.  Pray for our emergency responders and all who face danger as they serve us.
     In all things, let us praise God and give thanks for all blessings of grace and love God gives us day by day.


Thanks again.  Stay well and have a blessed day. 

Grace and Peace,

Rev. Sanders Read

Ms. Taylor gives a video overview of Summer Reading here!

Summer Reading is officially here, running until August 17th! Our 2020 theme is Imagine Your Story and we have lots of fun activities and videos planned. Our daily program videos will continue, and we'll also have 3 virtual performers this year: ScienceTellers, Bright Star Theater, and the SC Aquarium. 

We are using a new and exciting software to track and log reading/activities: Beanstack! (Yes, Beanstack also has a mobile app called Beanstack Tracker)

Anyone who signs up on Beanstack will be able to pick up a Treasure Box (bag full of weekly activities) at the library. Due to the popularity of our Summer Reading program and Treasure Boxes, we have scheduled 2 additional pick-up dates: Friday the 26th from 12 - 3PM & Tuesday the 30th from 3 - 6PM. Our programs are open to all members of the community. Anyone needing assistance to participate should contact the library.

You will receive a lanyard after signing up (Blue, ages 0-5) (Green, ages 6-11) (Gold, ages 12-17) (Burgundy, ages 18+) and will have the opportunity to earn 31 badges throughout the summer! Badges include a Sign-Up badge, Reading badges, Weekly Activity badges, Special Activity badges, and Performer badges. Earn any 10 badges to receive a Completion badge! Earn all 31 badges to receive a Mystery badge. When you earn a badge in Beanstack, you'll be able to get a physical button of the badge to add to your lanyard!

Period Poverty Project
 Beginning June 29, 2020, the Union County Carnegie Library will be accepting menstrual supply donations (pads, tampons, and liners). Upon re-opening the restroom facilities to the public, donations will be placed in the women’s restrooms, free of cost, at the Carnegie Library and its 3 satellite site locations in an effort to alleviate period poverty in Union County.

Period Poverty means that women do not have access to safe, hygienic menstrual products or are not able to manage their periods with dignity. A number of things contribute to period poverty but the main factors are: the accessibility of menstrual products, the affordability of menstrual products, and the stigma that surrounds this topic, as it is uncomfortable for most people. 

According to research, 86% of women didn’t have the supplies they needed in a public space and period poverty affects 2/3 of low-income women. This means that many women are forced to improvise which can cause illness and reproductive issues. Many women must decide between purchasing menstrual supplies and paying for essentials such as food or rent. Meanwhile many others are forced to miss work, school, and other important events because they could not access menstrual supplies. In fact, 1 in 5 girls miss school every month due to their period.

How can you donate?
  • Bring pads, tampons, or liners to the Union County Carnegie Library and place them in the donation bin located next to the upstairs circulation desk
  • Order online - we have created an Amazon Wish List and donation drive on Roonga.
