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.

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.

The Friends of the Hilton Head Lib...
