A Note From The Director Do you download and read or listen to books and magazines? Do you know that Berkeley County Library System has two resources, Jasmine Digital Library and OneClickDigital, offering digital books, and Zinio, offering digital magazines? Each of these resources is free if you have a library card. You can download the app for your Apple or Android phone, eReader, or tablet, and easily access the listings and download the selection quickly. From Jasmine Digital Library and OneClickDigital you can “borrow” eBooks or eAudiobooks. Our library has thousands of books on topics ranging from politics to romance, and a variety for all ages. Are you looking for a classic mystery or a self-help book? A children’s picture book or one by the latest teen author? Browse our Jasmine Digital Library and OneClickDigital catalogs and see what we have to offer. In Zinio, you’ll find 60 titles, with current and back issues available, ranging from woodworking to fashion, crafting, computers, and science.

Employee Sp tlights Sinteara, Computer Operator/PC Support

Sinteara is one of the people the staff turns to in times of computer trouble. Many times staff are able to troubleshoot computer issues but sometimes we need the expert! Sinteara never gets frazzled, she asks what the problem is and immediately works to solve it. She is always professional and informs the staff about how to fix and troubleshoot issues, especially with the public work stations. She inspires the staff to learn more in order to pass on things to our library users. Sinteara also opens up and illumines those terrifying computer issues we sometimes encounter. Her patience is unlimited, her ability to explain complicated matters is reassuring and her cheerfulness and love of her job is inspiring! Thank you Sinteara, for helping to keep things running for our branches. ~ Margie

Laura, Sangaree Library Team Leader Laura Baker does an excellent job of bringing joy to the work place. Not only does she help make every day a little bit more fun, but she also does a great job helping customers and staff. She brings with her a positive attitude, great ideas, and wonderful insights that are invaluable to us. ~ Rieta

Carol, Goose Creek Library Circulation Supervisor Carol is an incredible asset to the Goose Creek Library. She works very hard to ensure that customer needs are met in an effective and friendly manner. She has a natural ability to put people at ease and to make them feel welcome. She is constantly multi-tasking and if she is ever stressed, she does not show it. She sets a great example for all of us here! We are so thankful to have her as our Circulation Supervisor! ~ Ashley

Moncks Corner Staff I would like to nominate the entire Moncks Corner Team for their perseverance through the loss of friend and co-worker, Peggy Moultrie. Through the shock of such an untimely passing, the rush of the holidays, and maintaining the regular duties at the branch, the team never faltered in serving their public and showed kind support to each other in an unthinkable situation honoring the memory of Miss Peggy. ~ Laura

Kristen, Marketing/PR Coordinator and Barbara, Outreach/Children’s Librarian

Kristen and Barbara worked tirelessly on the planning of our 2nd Annual Tri-county Literary Celebration. Sponsorships were obtained, promotional materials created and printed, volunteers recruited, authors contacted and registered along with many other behind the scenes duties necessary for the success of this large event. ~ Karen

The New Mascot for BCLS! It’s been said that a good story has friends, adventures, and always starts with “Once Upon a Time.” My story has all of that and MORE. (ha ha, because that’s my name!) Come see me and my friends on the bookmobile to learn more about how my story begins and what adventures I have planned.
