In celebration of Library Card Sign-Up Month in September, the Batesburg-Leesville Branch held a month-long contest asking patrons to refer a friend to the library. Those who were referred by a friend and were new library card holders had their name entered into a prize drawing. The happy winner is shown holding his prize – a Friends of the Library tote bag full of books and additional items!
New patron, Bob Bouyea, was the recipient of a $100 Gift Card provided by the Friends of the Irmo Branch Library for the new library card campaign in May. Mr. Bouyea was very surprised and, obviously, happy about his good fortune! For the month of June campaign, The DoubleTree by Hilton generously donated a one-night’s stay at their Bush River Road property. The winner of this prize won’t have to go far for a relaxing evening, and maybe they will even take a good book to read by the pool!
