TEMPORARY CLOSING IN JUNE:
DENMARK BRANCH LIBRARY MOVES TO NEW LOCATION
The Denmark Branch of the ABBE Regional Library System will be closed approximately two weeks, beginning Monday, June 3, in order to move to its new home at 5122 Carolina Highway, beside the Denmark Fire Station.
The Library closing will enable staff to move books and equipment from the Library's current location in the Brooker Center, and activate the computer system at the new location.
During the June closure, patrons will be able to return materials at the library's outside return book in front of the Brooker Center.
The Denmark Library's new building, funded by State and Federal funds, offers more space, a separate children's section, a community meeting room, and more public computers.
