Have you seen the Little Libraries in our community?  They’re wonderful micro-mini libraries.  Need a book?  Feel free to take one, trade one, or share one.  We currently have five Little Libraries (McCormick County Library playground, McCormick Family Practice, Plum Branch Town Hall, Strom Seating Area        behind McCormick Chamber of Commerce and in the alcove at Willington.

The McCormick Library Book Club welcomes anyone who lives in the McCormick community. The club meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 4 pm at the McCormick Library.  Recently, because of COVID, our meeting location has been flexible and is determined on a month-by-month basis.  Watch the McCormick Messenger for updated information.
