Effective Tuesday, March 17, all branches of the Florence County Library System will be closed to the public in order to mitigate and prevent the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. The closing is scheduled to last until further notice.
All due dates and library card expiration dates will be extended past the duration of the closing. Customers who have library materials checked out may return them after the library reopens, as book drops will be closed in order to prevent contamination. No late fees will be charged for any items due during this time. IF YOU RECEIVE AN E-MAIL THAT YOUR ITEMS ARE OVERDUE PLEASE DISREGARD IT.
While closed to the public, the library will still answer questions and provide reference service through telephone, email, and social media. Customers are also encouraged to use the digital services available on the library website, including downloadable ebooks and e-audiobooks through OverDrive and RB Digital, and SC DISCUS resources such as TumbleBooks for children. Library staff will also be cleaning, conducting inventory of collections, and performing in-service training.
We will resume full operations as soon as it is possible to do so safely for library staff and customers. Updates will be posted to the library website, social media, and local media outlets.
For more information, please call (843) 662-8424.
