The Giving Tree

Honor or commemorate a loved one by donating to the children's and teen book collections.

Visit The Giving Tree at your local ABBE Library until January 3rd. For a contribution of 20 dollars, a book plate will be placed in a book selected from one of our Giving Trees. Acknowledgement cards are available to give to the honoree or family.

The Giving Tree


Elevator out of serviceThe elevator at the Aiken County Public Library will be taken out of service beginning Monday, October 17, for interior refurbishment and upgrades to its electrical system.

During this time, the first and second floors of the Library will be accessible only by stair. While the elevator is inoperable, library staff will make every reasonable accommodation to provide service to patrons who are dependent on the elevator for mobility.

Patrons are encouraged to visit any of five library branch locations in Aiken County, all of which are accessible. Branch libraries are located in Jackson, Langley, New Ellenton, North Augusta, and Wagener. For hours of operation and directions, visit the LIBRARY LOCATIONS section of the library's website.

"We are hoping the work will be complete and the elevator back in service in less than a month," said Aiken-Bamberg-Barnwell-Edgefield Regional Library Director Mary Jo Dawson. "Until then, our staff will work diligently to minimize the inconvenience for patrons."

Book Return


Return library materials inside at the first floor book return and enter to win a $50 Amazon gift card! A random winner will be selected when the elevator is back in service.

One entry per visit. Sponsored by the Friends of the Aiken County Public Library.

No Waiting. No Holds.

The hoopla service at the ABBE Digital Branch Library makes more than 300,000 titles immediately available for borrowing online. Patrons can check out up to 8 items per month. This is in addition to the materials already offered on our 3M Cloud Library and Overdrive services.

Immediate availability means that book club members all can check out the same titles at the same time. Materials may be streamed online or downloaded to a computer or mobile device. Graphic novel and comic fans can take advantage of the new Action View Comics reader. This new technology features bright, colorful art on full page or panel-by-panel views!
