Getting Your Library Card
Library cards are free to Charleston County residents, business owners, property owners, students, teachers of accredited K-12 grade schools, 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.
