Director's Desk 
Sarah McMaster

Your library benefits from the time and talents of seven very special people:  the Fairfield County Library Commission.
Appointed by the Fairfield County Council, these seven people constitute the legal governing board of the library. They may serve up to two four-year terms on the board.   Their duties include employing and supervising the library director, setting policies, and overseeing the financial operations of the library.  They also provide citizen input into the goals and long-range plans of the library, and serve as advocates for the library with County Council and the State Legislature.
The following people are currently serving on the Library Commission:

Clyde T. McCants, Chairman

Virginia Roseborough, Vice-Chairman

James M. (Bubba) Lyles, III, Treasurer

Harriet O. Pauling, Secretary

Elizabeth J. Patrick

Lanna McMeekin

Dorothy R. Martin

I appreciate the help they give me, and I hope our
BookBytes readers will thank them for their service as well!

As always, feel free to reach me at the library by phone (635-4971), by fax (635-7715), or by email (sarah@fairfield.lib.sc.us)
