Berkeley County Library needs community input
The Berkeley County Library is seeking input from the community.
At the March Macedonia Community Action Project Meeting, Sharon Fashion and Florence Lewis-Coker were there from the library.
The speakers said that the library would like to hear ideas. They asked four questions. What's good about your community? Do you use your library? What can the library do for you and your neighbors? How can the library partner with you and your neighbors to create the ideal community?
These questions can be answered by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com). Your input is important to the library in helping to shape its future direction.
The MCAP will be having its annual Spring Tea Fundraiser on Saturday, May 18 from 3 to 5 p.m. The Tea will be at the Oak Grove PH Church Family Life Worship Center.
If anyone would like to reserve a spot or host a table contact Faye at 565-3920.
