Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge

We are in to a new year….a new reading challenge!! This year we will be stirring up the pot a bit…the soup pot.  We have kicked off the “Alphabet Soup” Reading Challenge.  It will run from Jan 1st, 2014 through Dec 31st, 2014.

The challenge is to read a total of 52 books:  26 alphabetically by Title and 26 alphabeticalyl by Author.  It’s a great way to challenge yourself to read books and authors you normally would not have selected.  We hope you end up reading everything from A-Z.  Write you book titles and authors on a spoon and put in the Soup Bowl  at the library.  You can get your spoons and more details from the library staff.                 

SCLends OPAC is available!

The new online catalog is now available.  Check it out!  For an overview and how to use, watch this video.  Thanks to Rogan Hamby, York County Library, for providing the video.
