Welcome to the Abbeville Memorial Library Website!

Safer at Home

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has issued a statewide mask order. The order states a face covering must be worn in public in close contact with other people. The rule goes into effect Thursday, July 16th, at 5 pm and remains in place until July 31st, unless extended.
It added that all Alabama residents must wear a mask when within 6 feet of a person from another household in any of the following places: an indoor space open to the general public, a vehicle operated by a transportation service, or an outdoor public space where ten or more people are gathered. There are exceptions to this.

Imagination Celebration

Lew-E and Oogly are taking over our library Facebook Page! Since it’s impossible to stop a hilarious duo like Oogly and Lew-E, we’re letting them do it on Wednesday, June 3rd at 2 pm. Be ready to watch the show on your favorite computer or device. They both went deep into their bag of tricks to create a world of FUNNY and Imaginative things. There will be Juggling, Magic, Music, Mayhem, and much more! Plan to be with us to enjoy this Facebook Live Event. Since we can’t stop these two on their funny mission, we might as well enjoy it. See them Wednesday, June 3rd at 2 pm on the Abbeville Memorial Facebook Page!

Summer Reading 2020

Our Summer Reading Program Presentations because of the COVID-19 Pandemic will all be online in a virtual format. We will be posting more information on our Facebook Page, on the Website and in the Abbeville Herald.

Memorial Day 2020

On Monday 25th May we will be observing Memorial Day. We will not be answering phones or e-mails.


Abbeville Memorial Library continues to diligently support each other during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are proud to not only serve this community but to call ourselves part of it. While still closed to the public without a set date to reopen, we at Abbeville Memorial Library remain here to help however we can.
Our library offers many online resources, including homework help, job search help, and links for filing FAFSA, disability, and social security forms as well as an extensive online catalog. To access our online catalog, go to our Website Homepage (abbevillelibrary.org), and click on “Online Catalog.” under our logo. On the left side of the screen, you can also click the “AlabamaVirtual Library” for further resources and reading options. Wi-Fi is still available outside of our building, but keep in mind that the library is not open to the public at this time. We will still answer your calls, and you can dropoff materials in the night deposit box at the front of the library. Social distancing and handwashing remain the best defense from spreading the virus, and face masks are suggested for all public contact. Continue stay-at-home measures, though we understand how frustrating cabin fever can be! Consider the at-risk members of our community and remember that this will all be over one day. Staying at home now will help us reopen that much sooner.
Take care of each other as you can and work together to assure the long, healthy lives of all the residents of our great community and the beautiful town of Abbeville! Keep checking our Facebook page for updates, and we welcome any questions or comments you may have.
