Periodicals

The main library's latest print periodicals are on the ground floor near the circulation desk. Current magazines in plastic covers and newspapers may be used inside the library. By tilting the shelf containing each periodical, you may find the most recent back issues available. Some older issues are also available upon request.

*Sumter's newspaper, The Item's latest 12 months of print edition back issues are kept at the main library. Older back issues on microfilm and other local history sources may be accessed in the main library's South Carolina room.

(*Asterisks indicate both the main library and Wesmark branch library receive copies.)
