We are the public library system of Beaufort County, South Carolina. 

Our locations are gathering places that allow all residents - regardless of economic, social or racial background - free access to education, technology and literacy development.

Mission

The Beaufort County Library serves and supports the community for learning, for leisure, for life.

Vision

The Beaufort County Library System is a free and accessible center of ideas, information, and resources that foster learning, community, and literacy. The Library provides open and guided access to a wide variety of media and programs to inform, inspire, and empower people in their pursuit of lifelong learning, personal enrichment, and cultural understanding.

We are governed by a Library Board of Trustees who are appointed by Beaufort County Council. The Library system is a department of Beaufort County Government.
