Directly to You

In the minds of many, spring is the season for renewal. I am more
inclined to look at fall as particularly suited to starting new things.
Memories of summer have faded, the new school year beckons with
the promise of new ideas, new friends. The library has experienced a
few changes this summer. Briana Wickham, our most experienced
Page, is off to pursue studies at College of New Jersey. Michael
Arietta, a TZHS student, is our newest Page. Cheryl McNeil has joined
the Patron Services staff and will be helping out in both the Adult
Reference and Youth Services areas.
The library invites all our patrons to become Friends of the Library.
Details of membership levels can be found in the newsletter. Membership fees will enable the library to expand the number of museum passes available, fund special purchases and programs.
The Board of Trustees is actively seeking candidates to join the board.
Information and application forms are available at the Front Desk or
in Reference.
“The Greatest Generation: A Salute to WW II Veterans” program
received Honorable Mention in the 2010 RCLS Member Library Adult
Program of the Year competition. Many thanks to Adult Program
Coordinator, Bobbi Chertok, for organizing the event, and to all our
friends who attended the program. Please see the calendar in the
newsletter or check out the library website ( for upcoming events.
I would also like to thank everyone who participated in the Children’s
Summer Reading Program and our Adult Reading Raffle! In both programs, users were invited to submit reviews on the books they read – patron reviews, recommendations (and plenty of other suggestions) are posted on the library blog -( ).
We look forward to a wonderful fall – and encourage you to stop by
– there’s more than books at the Orangeburg Library!
