Library News & Notes

This summer, put your kids in touch with their creativity at Beaufort County Library

As another school year winds down and kids and parents start thinking about summer plans, it's the perfect time to visit the nearest branch of the Beaufort County library and unearth all sorts of interesting books.
After the last report card is received, kids have the luxury -- for at least part of the summer -- of reading their own selections, rather than being tied to a school reading list. We have books for every interest, hobby and reading level at your local library, and for free.
