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.

Lois Rhodes

I've been working with the Abbeville County Library System 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.




Trevor Gibson

I love being a part of the Abbeville County Library System team. I couldn’t ask for a better job.

When not working, I’m either at a record store, drinking tea, writing fiction, or reading, of course!





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.



Libby Meadows

I retired 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!



Grace McMurtury

I volunteered at the library when I was 15 to see if I would enjoy the career, and now I’m at Piedmont Technical College with a long-term goal of pursuing a masters in library science!

When I’m not at work, I love reading, playing videogames, and drawing.




Yvonne Coleman

I have worked at the Abbeville Library for 10 years through Experience Works and Goodwill. I was delighted to join the staff as a part-time employee in October 2017.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my three dogs - Tobasco, Honey Hush, and Pepper.
