Community press to keep the library branch; Springfield civic leader seeks time to save site | Local



Zacherl said that while the Orangeburg County library system will not staff the building, the space could be managed by other entities. Full access for 6 months for only $ 1

In addition to the library, the property includes the Springfield Regional Museum, Orangeburg County Military Museum, Visitor Center, Craftsman Center and Gift Shop and Educational Exhibit Hall.

Despite the Springfield library closing, Zacherl said other branches are doing well and there are no further plans to close.

“In fact, the relocated and expanded Holly Hill location is booming,” Zacherl said.

Zacherl said that, in the opinion of staff and many users, the location has already grown too large and a larger facility is needed.

The Holly Hill branch also serves residents of Vance and Eutawville.

“Many Santee residents visit the Holly Hill branch because their collection is larger than Santee, their facility is open more hours than other locations in this region, and they have more room to offer programs,” he said. Zacherl said. “Before COVID, Holly Hill’s site managed her entire computer lab, helped write job applications and resumes, held story hours each week, tutoring for homework help, as well as various other youth clubs. “

The other branches are fully operational. All branches have Wi-Fi, computers, books, magazines and other mixed media.
