The Link, Ballentine (Richland County Public Library)

RCPL Opens Newest Library Facility

A grand opening celebration of RCPL’s newest location—The Link, Ballentine—will be held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, December 4 at 1321 Dutch Fork Rd.

The Friends of RCPL matched a $65,000 Library Services and Technology Act Grant to help bring a library to the rapidly growing Ballentine community.

In addition to popular books for all ages and wireless Internet access, the facility will feature a video reference system that allows users to see and speak with a reference librarian at the Main Library.

Please note there will be no Bookmobile service on Friday, November 30 or Monday, December 3 in preparation for the opening.

Personal note: I’d like to thank the Blanchette family for their willingness to make this a reality for our community. Tom and his family have been very cooperative and supportive and have worked hard to assure our community would have this opportunity. When you see him out in the community, please tell him THANKS!

Stop by the Grand Opening if you can, this is something the whole community can enjoy!
