Union County Library System Celebrates National Library Week

Tag library system on social media or stop by to win prizes

This is National Library Week, a time the American Library Association says is to highlight the essential role that libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. This year’s theme is “Connect With Your Library”, promoting the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers, and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas, and classes, in addition to books. Most importantly, libraries connect communities to each other. Libraries of all types continue to go above and beyond to keep their communities connected by expanding resources and embracing inclusion in their programming, resources, and collections. To celebrate, the Union County Library System is encouraging citizens to join with library staff by participating in the library’s Spirit Week. Take pictures and tag the library system on social media, or stop by the library for the chance to win prizes. Today is Decade Wednesday, and you are invited to rock the fashion from your favorite decade. Thursday will be Team Thursday, so you are encouraged to wear your favorite team’s gear. Friday is Fave Color Friday, so deck out from head-to-toe in your favorite color then.
Speaking of connecting with technology through the library, as we reported a few weeks ago, the Carnegie Library is home to the state’s first Palmetto College iCarolina Learning Lab, complete with 20 each of new iMac computers, MacBooks, and iPads. The library will begin to offer computer classes to teach citizens how to use the technology, but they need your feedback first. The library has created a Computer Course Interest survey that it wants you to take so they will know what sort of courses to offer. You can access the survey through their Facebook page at
