Welcome to the Abbeville Memorial Library Website!

FOL Book Sale

On Thursday, April 13th & Friday, April 14th we will be having a book sale here at the library. Why don’t you stop by and have a look at the used books we have on sale. Most of them are library discards and some are like new. All the books will be clearly marked with a price. Hope to see you here. 

National Library Week

 April 9th – 15th is National Library week. This national observance was first sponsored  by the American Library Association (ALA) in 1958. Libraries all across the country will be celebrating the contributions of libraries, librarians, and all library staff to promote library use and support. Why don’t you come by and see what your library has to offer you. Tuesday April 12th is National Library Workers Day,  a day for everyone to recognize your own library workers.

FY 2018 Federal Budget Cuts


Not everyone has heard about the proposed federal budget calls for the elimination of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the grant program, the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). Public and school libraries and cultural institutions across the nation depend on IMLS and LSTA grants to provide additional financial support for programs, library materials, and technology. Our library depends on these funds to boost our local budget. We are asking that you contact your elected officials and let them know how you feel about this. Click the links below.

Proposed Federal Budget and Library Funding

The proposed federal budget will completely cut funding for The Institute of Museum and Library Service (IMLS) and its grant program, The Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). Public libraries, school libraries, and cultural institutions across the nation depend on IMLS and the LSTA grants to provide additional financial support for programs, library materials, and technology.
On the state level, the following services to Alabama public libraries will be cut or severely curtailed:

Homework Alabama
Learning Express
Services to the blind and Physically Impaired
Ancestry.com Library Edition
Chilton Auto Repair Online Manuals
Statewide Summer Reading Program
Technical Support to Public Libraries.
