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. Applications and a full job description are available at http://www.unionlibrary.org/employment.
