On opening day of the Del Webb Library at Indian Land, Nancy Berry will pull up to the library doors on her motorcycle and get right to work.

Berry has been named as the director of the new library in Indian Land, set to open in November.

Berry has worked at the library in Lancaster for 34 years. During the past 10 years she served as the library's assistant director.

Library Director Richard Band said Berry is the perfect choice to lead the new library in Indian Land because her experience will help her confront the various challenges.

"She's very knowledgeable about our whole operation and she's a hard worker, and very much a problem solver and I just think that I will feel like anything that comes up she can handle," Band said.

Berry, a Lancaster resident, is excited about the job and said she looks forward to the challenges of opening a new library.

"I don't know what to expect, that's the real challenge," Berry said.

She looks forward to working with Indian Land schools and making sure the library carries books that will be helpful to its students. She is also excited about meeting more Indian Land residents and learning about their book preferences.

Before serving as the assistant director at the Lancaster library, Berry was a children's librarian.

She expects to get back to her roots when the Del Webb Library opens, by assisting with the children's programs at the new library.

"It's been awhile since I've done it, but it will be interesting and challenging to learn their interests and read the children's books again," Berry said.
