In the Library

The South Carolina State Library plays a multifaceted role in serving the needs of South Carolina. We offer various programs and services for the state and people of South Carolina including library development and advocacy, talking book services, state and federal document depositories, and much more. Beyond our administrative functions, we also serve as a traditional library, complete with public spaces and diverse collections. We invite you to visit our library and explore our exhibits, displays, and the contents of our shelves. Our doors are open to the public on weekdays from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM, excluding holidays.
