Welcome to Abbeville Memorial Library!

Need Help Helping your children?
APLS has provided our library with access to live tutors and experts to help children with their homework and get extra tutoring. Sunday - Thursday from 3pm- 10pm you can access these people to assist you in getting your child back up to where they used to be, give them another boost and some encouragement, or just have an extra set of hands to help. Going to the links listed below will put you in front on live, real people to help!!! Information is also available at the front desk. Connect to an expert tutor on line, in all subjects!!!

Abbeville Memorial Library is now on Instagram!

With social media exploding we wanted to find ways to incorporate our library and public necessities into the technology age and make ourselves more accessible across the spectrum. With the launch of our website as well as our Facebook page we are taking those steps into the internet world. Now with Instagram we are able to display all of the new books we get in, magazines and audio books. Give sneak peeks into events and programs we host. As well as the special moments that make the library a home away from home. Get connected and link up with us now!!!

Introduction to Computers and Internet

We are having classes dedicated to educating people across the spectrum on basic computer skills and internet knowledge. Wednesday October 8, 2014 will be seminar number three highlighting PowerPoint Presentations and PROFESSIONALLY Navigating Social Media. Wednesday October 15, 2014 will be the follow-up class. Details regarding the lesson plan for that class is TBA. We will be giving a hands on lesson in the Need To Knows of today's computer and how to most productively navigate the internet. Sign Up sheets are posted at the front desk. Sign Up quick!!!
