Getting Your Library Card
Library cards are free to Charleston County residents, business owners, property owners, students, members of the military and employees of Charleston County.
Stop by any branch location to apply for your card. To receive a card, you must present valid identification showing proof of your current address. Applications for children age 11 and under require a signature from a parent or guardian. If you are a South Carolina resident living outside of Charleston County, you can obtain a library card by paying an annual fee of $40.
Library cards are good for one year and can be renewed at no cost.
