Your public library … check it out

Published 10:18 am Wednesday, November 16, 2011

If you haven’t been to your public library lately, now’s a great time to visit.

Don’t worry if you’ve accumulated a few late fees, either. You can get those cleared up this week with a donation of canned food. During the Greenville-Butler County Public Library’s “Food for Fines” week, patrons can have up to $1 in fines forgiven for each can of food donated.

The items will be sent to local food banks. So you can clear your conscience and help a good cause all at the same time.

The program, which runs through Nov. 19, is just one of many orchestrated by library director Kevin Pearcey. Pearcey has been working hard to bring relevant and exciting programs to a time-honored pubic resource.

He’s helped the library embrace the digital age through its website and Facebook page. Both are worth bookmarking, if you haven’t already done so.

The library is offering a “Facebook for Seniors” class on Tuesday, Nov. 22 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Space is limited.

Each Wednesday in November, the library is offering free assistance for resume-writing. For more information on these and other programs, call 382-3216.
