York County is taking literacy on the road with its new outreach van. On February 24, Director of Finance and Grants Wendy Coplen joined YCL Director Jason Hyatt and his team to celebrate the Sprinter van and cut the ribbon, signifying its launch into the community. The van contains a wheelchair lift and roll-on book carts for serving senior patrons.

Color Our Collections

We are honored to participate in the New York Academy of Medicine’s “Color Our Collections” campaign allowing libraries, museums, and archives to feature special collections and rare books as coloring books. To showcase the historical component of our collection, we selected fairytales, storybooks, and illustrated magazines dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s.

We may be the library’s library; however, we also serve South Carolina citizens. A grandchild of Retha Mark, the Secretary of the South Carolina Library Association in 1964, asked our reference librarians to search the collection for information about her career. Articles surfaced, including one from the Charleston Evening Post, which included this photo from her swearing-in ceremony.
