Library Card Information
Getting Your Library Card

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.
