Library hours to remain unchanged

May 14, 2015: For at least the next three months, existing hours at our Beaufort County Library branches will remain unchanged, instead of reducing hours, which was announced in late April. In a meeting on Wednesday, May 13, the Library Board of Trustees supported new Director Ray McBride’s proposal to keep hours as they are.

Researchers Take Note: Contact Ahead of Visit

If you are going to travel to a special collections library/archives/museum or other cultural heritage institution to do research, check for current hours of operation before you leave home. Visit the institution's web, blog, or Facebook pages for a number to call or an e-mail address to confirm availability. Experienced researchers know to do this at least a week or two in advance of a proposed research visit.Read More...
