Reminder: Library Closing February 27 - March 24


Book drops will remain open at all library locations for customer convenience.

If you are placing a hold that is likely to arrive between February 27-March 24, please select an alternate library branch for pick-up.  If no other branch is selected, holds available for Mt. Pleasant patrons between February 27-March 24 will go the Main Library by default.

Another option is if you would like to suspend your holds for while we are closed. Suspending your hold will keep your place in line for you but will not fill the hold until the hold is unsuspended.  If this sounds like something you're interested in we can do it for you or you can log on to your account and suspend your holds.

If you have any questions, feel free to comment below, call (843)849-6161, or come by the library at 1133 Mathis Ferry Rd.
