Library’s Bookmobile needs new name
Several weeks ago I wrote an article about the Berkeley County Library’s plan to bring back the Bookmobile.
The Bookmobile will feature more than books … it will have computers with Internet access, music and movies.
The library will mainly be targeting the rural areas in Berkeley County, helping families and children who want to learn. There are still a lot of people out in rural areas that don't have Internet or are able to make trips to the library.
Since the mobile will be more than books it needs a new name. The library is having a naming contest that will continue until Aug. 15.
A prize will be given to the winner.
There are three ways to enter. Drop off your entry at any library location; enter it by e-mail at www.yourlibraryvoice.com; or mail it to Berkeley County Library,100 Library Street, Moncks Corner, SC 29461.
Also, the library is in need of knowing location sites in the communities where they can come. Maybe there is a recreation building or a church that can be a site for your area. Please call 719-4243 with suggestions.
The Macedonia Christian Church started the Manna Ministries Food Bank about four years ago and it is still going strong helping the community.
They help over 40 families twice a month in the community. They are open the second and fourth Saturday of each month from 10 to 11 a.m.
Continue to save your education box tops off of many products. Bonner Elementary School takes the money they get from the box tops to help pay for student field trips.
The Quarterly Community Prayer Meeting will be on Thursday, July 18 at 7 p.m. It will be at Trinity Full Gospel Association on Harristown Road.
Continue to pray for Virginia Kirkland, Thelma Shurlknight, Eric Shurlknight, Pat Shurlknight, Louise Litchfield, David Brown, Sally Bowick, Carr family, Sarah Jackson, Justin Knight, Willis Wiggins, Willie Cox, Cassidy Cox, Dexter Floyd, Bo Langley, Barry Swall, Ted Caddell, Madison Litchfield, RosaLee Litchfield, Marion and Juanita Mills, Allen Mills, DP Caddell, Mitzie Caddell, Leah Mitchum, Burt Alexander, Barbara Alexander, Gage Brinson, Patricia West, Brenda Law, Ruth Cumbee, Kitty Cumbee, Yvonne Cumbee, Sam and Yvonne Hood, Ricky Hood, Gennie Vincent, Geraldine Garrett, Marilyn Tucker, Maggie Dubose, Wilma Morris, Bryon and Jenelle Watts, Rouse Thomas, Kyle Thomas, Viola Atkins, Viola Murphy, Violet O'Connor, Roy and Marlene Farmer, Debbie Fail, Shelvy Jean Wilson, Ted Caddell, John Graham, Zachary Waterman, Lester Mills, Debbie Gaskins, Debbie Litchfield, Woody Litchfield, Kelly Umphlett, Kit Reames, Mike Mitchum, Frankie Garrett, Frank Litchfield, Shirley Perry, Leah Mitchum, Harry Wyndom, Jeff Davis, Mildred Thames, Pastor Reggie Thames, Liz Barlow, Marie Barlow, Kathy Newsome, Janice Musau, and our firefighters, first responders, military, community and country.
