(p) 803.799.5873 | (e) cjohnson@richlandlibrary.com / Wheatley is truly a neighborhood library set right in the heart of the Old Shandon community. We are excited to continue to serve our neighbors who regularly walk, ride bikes or drop-in just to see us. Even though we’re small, there is plenty of seating, inside and outside, for those who want to telecommute, pursue a degree online, check out a children’s program or leaf through the latest bestseller or newspaper. Let me know if you have any thoughts, questions or input about what is being planned for your neighborhood library.
