Although ebooks and audiobooks have risen in popularity, real paper books are not in danger of going away anytime soon. There is something about going to your local library and sifting through the wide variety of literature to borrow and getting lost in a new adventure. Luckily, there are quite a few popular libraries in the CSRA that have more to do than just read. Take a look at some of our local favorites and the activities they offer!
The Columbia County Library is located in the heart of Evans. It is a double level facility complete with an endless variety of books and 42 computers for public use. There are multiple classes and events each month for all ages to enjoy, from “Baby & Me” classes for little ones to adult guitar clubs and everything in between. In addition to the library, there is a 300-seat performing arts theater that hosts musicians, dance companies and more. There is a beautiful park and picnic area outside with an amphitheater for outdoor events, a ⅓ mile walking trail and multiple playgrounds for children to enjoy. The Columbia County Library is located just 6 miles from our Woodlief subdivision!
Our Aiken communities are convenient to the Aiken County Public Library, a beautiful multi-use library nestled in Aiken. It is complete with public computers and many community classes such as Family Story Time and Adult Coloring. The library is located just 9 miles from Gregg’s Mill, 12 miles from The Retreat at Storm Branch and 6 miles from Summerton Village.
Tucked away off of Louisville Road in Grovetown is the cozy Euchee Creek Library. This library is set on a smaller scale but still offers over 53,000 books for both children and adults. There are also classes for child enrichment, arts & crafts and more. Residents of Willow Oak Village can enjoy a short 1.5 mile commute to the library and Kelarie residents only have to travel 3 miles.
