Hangin' out after hours

It was a good time all around when the Abbeville Library opened its doors last night just for teens ages 12-18. Check it out:

September is Library Card month!

September is Library Card Sign-up Month. Be sure that you (and all your friends and family!) have the smartest card of all -- a library card. Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.

"A library card has always been the most important school supply of all," says Director of the South Carolina State Library, David Goble.

So join the excitement -- and sign up for your library card today! Already a card holder? Great! Now be sure to tell others about this great resource!
