Abbeville County Library System

Mary Elizabeth Land, Director

MA, Clemson University
MLS, Long Island University

I've been the director of the Abbeville County Library System since 2002. I love my job and library system, especially our wonderful staff!

When I'm not at work, I'm at home reading or out at a restaurant, since I love to eat but hate to cook. I'm originally from NJ, but now Abbeville is truly home.

Headquarters Branch

Carrie Koerber
BA, Lander University
MLIS, University of South Carolina

I have been working at the library since July 2005 and absolutely love my job. I feel like a superhero when I am able to help others get exactly what they need.

When I take off my superhero cape, I can be found caring for my little boy and reading, reading, reading!


Libby Meadows
BA, University of New Mexico

I am really excited about being the newest member of the Abbeville County Library System! I retired last year from the USDA Forest Service after 25 years of service, where I worked as a Timbermarker, Recreation Technician, Outdoor Recreation Planner and most recently a Zone Special Use Administrator.

When not working, I enjoy gardening, swimming, embroidering, and most importantly, reading!


Hannah Ray

From 2008 to 2013, I was a library volunteer here in Abbeville. As a staff member, I am honored to be able to help people enjoy books as much as I do.

My interests, aside from reading and collecting books, include writing fiction, nature photography, attending classical concerts, studying languages, and doing crossword puzzles.


Merry Trask

I am very happy to be a staff member with the Abbeville County Library System. I am a native of Abbeville, but lived in Beaufort for about 25 years where I taught art in several of the elementary schools. I later worked for Beaufort County EMS. Most recently, I have worked for Abbeville County EMS.

When I'm not at work, I enjoy running, cycling, and reading.

Agnew Branch Library

I am so excited to be a part of the Abbeville County Library System team, and I look forward to assisting patrons at the Donalds-Agnew branch. There's nothing quite like finding a gem of a book and diving in!

When I am not at the library, I am busy keeping up with my three children, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, traveling, and reading a good book, of course!


Ashley Weyer

I have been at the Agnew Branch since October 2007. I enjoy reading and love helping patrons find new authors and books to read.

When not at work, I spend most of my time with my boys! :)

Calhoun Falls Library

I've been working at the Calhoun Falls Library since 2005. I really enjoy working with our patrons and helping them find just what they're looking for!

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, knitting, camping, and hanging out with my family.
