Anderson County Library has
Tumblebooks for your enjoyment. They
have stories, games, activities, puzzles, and so much more.
The online programs have been made possible through a Library
Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and
Library Services administered by the South Carolina State Library.
We offer a variety of reading materials for all ages. The
Easy Fiction/Picture Book Collection is for the preschool to kindergarten
age child. These picture books are suitable to read to young children.
The beginning chapter books for first and second graders
are located on the JE Fiction shelves. This collection has
been created from the Easy and the Juvenile Fiction books bringing together the
books especially for children who are beginning to read by themselves. These
books have an orange “Reader” sticker on the spine of the book.
Juvenile Fiction Collection of books is for children
in the third through fifth grade. The Juvenile NonFiction
Collection offers a variety of information arranged by topic with books on
all reading levels. These books are arranged numerically by the Dewey
Decimal Classification system. A librarian will be pleased to help you
find the information you need
Our TOT Collection (Teaching Our Toddlers) has
information on parenting issues, resources for helping children to learn, plus
several resources for early childhood teachers.
One copy of each of the following award books is shelved in this collection;
other copies of an award winner are shelved within the regular collections.
SC Book Award
Nominees – each spring a committee of school librarians vote on a list
of books to be read by the next school year’s students and then in March a
vote is held to find out the winner in three categories: Children’s,
Junior, and Young Adult.
"Time Out Boy"
You can view “Time Out Boy” when you visit the Children’s Department.
He’s been loaned to the library by an Anderson resident and was sculpted
by Gary Price of Springville, Utah. The youngster is taking time out
from the baseball diamond to read a favorite book…at the library!
Just like the adults, children have access to computers at the
library. The Children’s Department currently has six computers
where children can enjoy a variety of games and create
documents for schoolwork. The Children's Department also has
internet computers available. Internet access is not available
unless the child is accompanied and supervised by an adult.

Warm, sunny weather and the Children’s Courtyard go hand in hand at the
library. There is a natural amphitheatre here where children can
enjoy outdoor story times and other performances.
