Nancy Allegood

Female Owl

Hello!  My name is Ms. Evans Allegood.  I am the Teacher Librarian at Baptist Hill Middle High School.  I teach grades 6-12.  I teach an open schedule in the library with print and non-print, digital resources where classes come to read, check out books or conduct research.  I have a flexible schedule in the library lab, connected to the library.  There are meeting areas in the library for students, teachers and parents.  The library is open Monday through Friday.  The hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., except for Wednesdays, when the hours are 7 am. to 2:10 p.m.  Welcome to the Bobcat Library!

Library Cards at Charleston County Public Libraries are available free throughout the year.  I want to help every student have a FREE library card!  
      
 September was library card month.  Of course it's now January, but you can apply for a library card free anytime because you live in Charleston County at ccpl.org.                              

The only requirement for a library card is that you live in Charleston County!  Ask me or your Charleston County Public Librarian for a free application! Or simply fill one out on their website at https://www.ccpl.org/.  As always, ask me if you need help.  Ms. Allegood
