  New Services Available on Library's Website

Inside this issue:

The Fairfield County Library is one of only eleven public libraries in South Carolina that provides access to its catalog over the World Wide Web.  The library has recently upgraded its on-line catalog software to provide access to more Web-based services.
Library users can now not only search the catalog, but also perform interactive functions as well.  By using your library barcode number and a pin number for access to your patron file, you can renew your books on-line, place holds on books that are checked out, and view all the items checked out on your patron record. 
Another exciting feature of the new software is that Fairfield County community information will be available on the Web.  An organization database and a local events calendar allow the library to post local information in a Web-accessible format.  You can help us make the events calendar a useful tool for the community by sending us information about local events of interest to the public.  By doing this you will be
