The McCormick County Library now offers audio books on portable digital players called Playaways. These small players are each pre-loaded with one book and can easily fit in your pocket. Attach ear buds or your own headphones and you are ready to listen anywhere. The handy, high-tech devices have many advantages. There is no need to juggle multiple CDs, worry about scratching a disc, or download anything to a device. They can also be connected to the audio jack in your car or to a set of external speakers. Patrons may checkout these audio books two at a time for a period of three weeks. Batteries are included and ear buds may be included for a $3 deposit.
The selection of books available is geared toward children and teens. Just a few of the available titles appear below. You can search the entire collection by visiting the online catalog. Contact the library for more information at 864-852-2821 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Thursday, May 22nd @ 6:30 will be the last chance to play trivia at the library before a summer hiatus. Teams can now be up to 5 players each. Tables are filling up quick, so call ahead to guarantee a spot. Bring a team or join a team when you arrive. Food and drink served. $5 per person. Trivia night will be back in the fall on a new night of the week, probably Tuesday… stay tuned. Congratulations to Team Atlas who won in April and donated the proceeds to McCormick Fire Station 30.
