About the BDC The "BDC" is our Library's special local history and archives collection. The purpose of the Beaufort District Collection is to acquire, preserve, maintain and make accessible a research collection of permanent value that records the history of the area of lowcountry South Carolina known as the old historic Beaufort District. We have biographies, nonfiction books, video materials and archival collections about local history including Gullah traditions, natural history, archaeology, genealogy, and other topics relevant to Beaufort, Hampton and Jasper Counties. It is important to note that the City of Beaufort owns the parking lot, and the parking spaces are metered. For more information regarding the BDC, click herePlease visit the Library's COVID Operations page to read about changes to our services.

The library will be closed on Monday, July 5th.
