Library Hours

Monday – Friday 9 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

Saturday – 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

By Ben Loftis, Director

I have mentioned DISCUS in this blog several times, but today I want to highlight a resource that has been given additional value by new legislation.  It was recently announced that this will be the first year in which the High School Assessment Program standardized test will not be given.  Instead, 11th graders will take two other assessments- a college and career assessment (a specific test has not been determined) and WorkKeys, a test measuring essential workforce skills. 

For several years, the library has directed patrons to the Learning Express Library resource provided by DISCUS which provides a variety of subject resources for students as well as test prep for standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT.  Learning Express recently made the decision to provide three WorkKeys test prep resources.  WorkKeys practice tests have been added in the subjects of “Applied Mathematics,” “Reading for Information,” and “Locating Information.”  To access these resources, visit the library’s website ( and follow the link to DISCUS, or go directly to DISCUS at  From there, select Learning Express Library, find the heading “Career Center,” then choose the heading “Prepare for the WorkKeys Assessment and the TOEIC.”  While at, be sure to explore the numerous other databases made available to all residents of South Carolina.  DISCUS can accessed from any computer in the state, or by contacting any library in SC (including the Carnegie Library) and asking for a username and password.
