The 20th Annual Uniquely Union Festival is coming soon to beautiful Downtown Union, SC.  The festival will begin at noon on Friday, September11 through Saturday, September 12, 2015 at 10:00 p.m.  This festival is a free event.


Live music, arts and crafts, food and merchandise vendors, and a Kidz Zone are among the attractions of this year’s festival.  Friday night’s headlining act on the Main Stage is Elvis impersonator, Rick Alviti.  He is back by popular demand and his high energy show is a crowd pleaser.  The Root Doctors will take the Main Stage Saturday night with their funky sound that will keep everyone on their feet.


The barbeque cook-off is always a big attraction along with the ever popular Tasters’ Choice event.  Tasters’ Choice allows ticket holders to sample BBQ from each cooker, then vote for their favorite sample.  Tickets for the Tasters’ Choice event may be purchased at one of the Welcome Centers for $5.  One ticket is good for samples from every cooker.


We are currently looking for volunteers to help out with various parts of the festival.  If you would like to volunteer, send an email to

The Summer Reading program is probably the biggest, and certainly the longest, program hosted by the Carnegie Library each year. It provides an opportunity to encourage reading at a time when many patrons, both young and old, have a little extra time.


The Carnegie Library’s Summer Reading program features components for both children and adults. Today I want to focus on the children’s program.


The children’s Summer Reading program offers the library the opportunity to reach children at a particularly vital period in their education – summer breaks.  Research has revealed the potential of the “summer slide” in which students who do not engage in educational opportunities often fail to retain a part of their learning and fall behind students who remain active educationally throughout the summer.  Summer Reading programs offer a great opportunity to combat this phenomenon as well as to reach new patrons through fun activities.


This year’s theme of superheroes allows children to discover that “Every hero has a story,” while teens were able to “Unmask” many new ideas and discover new authors.  Programs centered on this hero theme, focusing both on local heroes such firefighters, police officers, and medical workers, as well as fictional super heroes through a variety of fun and interactive programs such as superhero themed crafts and a mini-training camp for young future superheroes. 


Another unique component available this year was a series of art projects provided courtesy of a grant through the State Library.  Comic book writer Dave McDonald presented a workshop for children who had the opportunity to learn how comic books were made and to create their own characters.  Other programs offered students the chance to make their own art project.


The children’s program wrapped up with a finale that encouraged students to dress as their favorite superheroes and have the opportunity to win prizes.


Grand prizes were offered in two age groups, with Kenlee Beaver winning an InnoTab3 learning tablet and Robert Alan Hill receiving a Kindle Fire.  Other participants also received a variety of superhero-themed prizes including craft supplies and coloring books, as well as other books to add to their collections.  In addition to the art grant mentioned earlier, funding for the 2015 children’s Summer Reading program was provided through another grant from the State Library as well as a grant from Dollar General.  The State Library grants were offered through the LSTA program, while Dollar General annually offers Summer Reading grants.  The Carnegie Library is greatly appreciative of the support provided by the State Library and by Dollar General.  


The library will be closed Labor Day, Monday, September 7, 2015.
