About my libraryWe are an on-the-small side library who would like to be a part of the on-the-big side tech library world. So we're jumping feet-first into Library Thing and hoping for the best. Right now, we're mostly adding new(ish) books to Library Thing. Find (in collections) adult ("your library"), teen, African American, poetry, Christian/Gentle fiction, Oprah's Book Club, and children's books to browse! We'd love to be more connected with other SC libraries, but we'd most of all love to be connected with YOU, our patrons! Please take awhile to browse our collections and see what you can find.

Bonus to patrons: Creating your own LibraryThing account will allow you to catalog your own personal books OR keep track of what you've read at the library! No more guessing; it can all be right here! It's easy AND free! Please, come join us in cyberspace!

As an additional note, we have a huge local history / genealogy collection that can't be cataloged here, but please feel free to call or e-mail us with any history or gen questions that you have-- we're always happy to help however we can.

We invite comments and reviews, from our own patrons and whoever else has a penny's worth of thoughts!

“‘Fine fruit is the flower of commodities.’ It is the most perfect union of the useful and the beautiful that the earth knows. Trees full of soft foliage; blossoms fresh with spring bounty; and, finally, fruit, rich, bloom-dusted, melting, and luscious.”
- Andrew Jackson Downing (including a brief quote from “acute essayist,” Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Essay XIII Gifts (1844).

Though other things grow fair against the sun,
Yet fruits that blossom first will first be ripe.
- William Shakespeare, Othello the Moor of Venice

What plant we in this apple tree?
Sweets for a hundred flowery springs
To load the May-wind's restless wings,
When, from the orchard-row, he pours
Its fragrance through our open doors;
A world of blossoms for the bee,
Flowers for the sick girl's silent room,
For the glad infant sprigs of bloom,
We plant with the apple tree.
- William Cullen Bryant, The Planting of the Apple Tr
ya, we aren't to big, but we have 12 sister branches. We have over a million items in our collection and we still have people complain, that they can't find something.
As for our Sat, GED and ACT ya they are always getting lost or stolen. We can never keep them. I think they put a tracking device on them! Then when the police show up at there door, I bet they will never steel again. LOL

From Dennis Adams, Beaufort County Library --

You may want to contact Halle Eisenman, one of our Bluffton Branch librarians, who is heading up our adult summer reading program this year: Maybe you both could share ideas.
I just finished reading Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz. It was fabulous!! It's not your typical vampire book and I think teens will really enjoy it. The sequel was just published on May 1.
What a great idea!
Nice to see South Carolina public libraries here on LibraryThing. Good luck!
