Library Touts Expanded Services

Daniel Prince

Walk-up services, tutoring, and dial-a-story are among the library's offerings

The Union County Carnegie Library this week began offering walk-up services. That is a way to get connected to reliable information about basic needs, health care, benefits counseling, and more. Walk-up services are free and available to the public with no appointment needed. The library has set hours for the services, which are Mondays and Wednesdays from 10-noon and Thursdays from 4-6.

Another service offered through the library is access to no-cost, one-to-one online tutoring, resumé and cover letter review, and other learning resources. All you need is a library card. Tutor.com offers a free orientation session on the fourth Friday of each month. In October, the session will be held Friday, October 22, at 3 p.m. Attendees will learn how to gain access to the program and the features that are available, plus the leaders of the webinar will answer questions live. The library can help you access it. Give them a call at 427-7140.

The library is bringing back its Dial-A-Story phone line, which is available 24/7 from any phone. Call 864-301-8899 and follow the prompts to listen to stories, poems, jokes, and more, read and recorded by Union County Library staff. Most stories are under five minutes and will be changed monthly.
