Things are a-changin' at the Beaufort Branch Library!
Over the past two years, the Beaufort Branch Library has received new carpeting, meeting room renovations, new service desks and furniture, and - finished just this week - renovations on a new staff work area.
These projects were made possible by the generosity and dedication of the Friends of the Beaufort Library. All proceeds earned by the Beaufort Friends from things like book sales and memberships are recycled back into various projects for the Beaufort, St. Helena, and Lobeco branch libraries.
In June 2017, Beaufort County Council funded the first Library Bookmobile in 21 years. Based on the phenomenal success of this service to Beaufort County citizens in its first six-months of operation, the Friends of the Hilton Head Library decided that they would like to fund a second vehicle.
The Friends of Hilton Head Library Board of Directors worked with Library Director Ray McBride to discuss the feasibility of a second vehicle. After a quick study of the available data and discussions with Library Board of Trustees, Beaufort County Administration, and Beaufort County Council, it was decided that this was a fantastic opportunity.
