Library Transform

NLW-banner_0 (1)

(ABBEVILLE, AL) –Next week, the Abbeville Memorial Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the dynamic changes that are happening in today’s libraries. April 10-16 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians, and library workers.

Libraries today are more about what they do, for and with library users as opposed to what they have for patrons. Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies, learn how to use a 3D printer or just relax. Our library offers access to a variety of print and digital resources, including E-books, Alabama Virtual Library, and Learning Express Library, which can be accessed online.

Libraries of all types are evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. At the Abbeville Memorial Library we are transforming. In the next few months we will be hosting Basic Computer Classes, for those patrons who are new to computers. We are holding “Brown Bag Lunches” where a service that we offer is explained in about an hour. Service to the community has always been the focus of the library, and libraries level the playing field for people of any age who are seeking the information and access to technologies that will improve their quality of life. Stop by the Abbeville Memorial Library and see what we have to offer
