SCLENDS Public Library Lending Consortium to Suspend Operations until Further Notice


SCLENDS, which stands for “South Carolina Library Evergreen Network Delivery System," is a consortium of 20 county libraries and the State Library that shares resources and circulating materials. SCLENDS libraries share a single catalog, which means that patrons can search for items at any of the libraries as easily as they search for items at their home library.
