Do you appreciate your public library? The South Carolina General Assembly has passed a concurrent resolution declaring January 31, 2008 be Public Library Appreciation Day in South Carolina. This concurrent resolution concludes by stating, "Be it further resolved that the people of South Carolina avail themselves of the many rich services provided by our public libraries to meet their educational, informational, and recreational needs." It is the sincere hope of the entire staff of the Sumter County Library that we are meeting the needs of our community as outlined in the proceeding statement. And we hope you have been showing your appreciation of the Library by availing yourself of our many services. Perhaps you've stopped in to pick up a tax form. Federal forms are here and state forms should be on the way shortly. Maybe you came by to read a newspaper, read or checkout a magazine, checkout the latest bestseller or audio book. Or a DVD. You may have gone online to surf the internet, check your e-mail, fill out a job application, or follow the latest political happenings on websites or blogs. It could be that one of the junior members of your family attended storytime or one of the senior members checked out a title from our large print collection. You could have downloaded an audio book or used an online database. Maybe you attended a film, took one of our computer classes, used one or our meeting and study rooms, or went to a program. We have a great deal to offer and we certainly appreciate the support you have given and continue to give your public library. Please make sure to avail yourself of these and all our other services.
