About the Lobeco Public Library
Building Project

In late October of 2002, renovation of the old Lobeco School House building began at 1862 Trask Parkway (Highway 21). Less than nine months later, the new Lobeco Branch Library held its Grand Opening (June 14, 2003) as the library facility for the northern area of Beaufort County (the Dale Public Library had previously shared the media center of Davis Elementary School ).

The new, expanded facility allows for a growing collection of materials and increased outreach and children's programs. Its visibility to visitors coming into Beaufort County from highways 21, 17 and Interstate I-95 make the new Lobeco Branch Library a useful local "information center" and a valuable resource for the growing tourism industry.
