Santa returns to the Accomac Library!
Santa was a big hit this year with 96 children receiving
books and candy canes. It kept him and his elves hopping
for the whole 2 hours. He plans to return next year.
November Book Sale a Success!
Our November Book Sale was a great success! Made the most
money ever for this event and our book selection was great.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered to help move the books.
Recent financial support from the Friends
Among recent monetary donations to the library from the
Friends, Legos were purchased for children's events.
Friends also purchased a magazine rack to improve display
and access of children's magazines. We also purchased
some chairs for the smaller children's table. Once
again, we will be providing significant financial support
for the Summer Reading Program. If you have ideas for
things that you would like the Friends to consider doing,
let us know. If you can't attend one of our regular
meetings, you can always leave us a note at the front desk.

Latest Accomplishments - making access to the Library easier.
Easier access for everyone to everything our Library can
- Automatic doors were installed to make access to the Accomac
Library easier for everyone. It is amazing how many people use
the button! Patrons with armfuls of books were using their
elbow, small children were asking if it was their turn to open
the door, other patrons were using it to help elderly folks
come in and out, as well as people on crutches, walkers, canes
and in wheelchairs.
- You can now download e-books and audio books from the
Libraries website. The Friends recently gave a donation to the
ESPL to help underwrite the cost of the E-Books subscription
and equipment. This is an expensive undertaking but was in
demand from many patrons so the Trustees of the Library
authorized the subscription. Go to
to find out more or call (757) 787-3400.
