A calendar.  A calendar.  Another calendar.  Yes. Another calendar.  The last calendar.

The library is debuting a new service for Fairfield County:  a web-based Community Calendar. 
The software for this service was purchased by the library using funds from the S.C. Education Lottery.  Maintaining the calendar is a joint project of the    library and the Fairfield County Chamber of        Commerce and will help meet one of the goals in  Fairfield County's Strategic Plan.
For more information or to submit public events for inclusion in the calendar, contact Sarah McMaster at the library or Terri Vickers at the Chamber.
