To receive your library card, stop in with a photo ID plus proof of Beaufort County residency (utility bill, recent mail, property tax receipt, etc.)


To save time, fill out the form to the right before visiting one of our branches. When you arrive at the library, let us know you've pre-registered online. 

Library cards are free to Beaufort County residents and property owners, students, and military. Children ages 4 and up may get their own card with their parent/guardian present at sign-up.

Non-residents cards are available for an annual fee.
