The Library Staff
Abbeville County Library System

Mary Elizabeth Land, Director
BA, Erskine College
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.

I really enjoy working at the Abbeville County Library. It feels like the perfect job for me.

When I'm off work, I enjoy practicing yoga, making art, and being in the great outdoors, camping and hiking.

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!


Merry Trask
BA, Converse College

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 and 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.


Hannah Ray

I have been volunteering at the Abbeville Library since 2008, and am now honored to be even more able to help people enjoy books as much as I do.

My interests, aside from reading, include book collecting, writing fiction, nature photography, and listening to music.

Agnew Branch Library

I am so excited to join 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 two boys, experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, traveling, and reading a good book, of course!


Don Lawson
BA, University of Miami
MA, University of Tennessee
PhD, University of Tennessee

I've worked at the Abbeville County Library (with a break in there) since 2006.

When I'm not at the library I'm reading or...
watching Japanese horror films or...
traveling the world or...
eating gourmet food!

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.
