Lexington County Public Library offering virtual services & curbside holds pickup during pandemi

Lexington, SC – The Lexington County Public Library is temporarily closed to the public. However, they're still working to provide their community with the resources they need. You can visit their website and use your library card for instant access to ebooks, videos, audiobooks, databases and more. For those without a library card, use their simple, online application process to get a temporary one and join in on their virtual library experience.

Their proficient library staff are continuously collecting quality resources to add to their “Coronavirus Resource Directory”. It's a one-stop database of financial, health, educational and recreational information to help you and your family.

They are also offering curbside holds pickup. Patrons with items on hold will be contacted by the library to schedule a pickup day and time. When placing items on hold, you should allow a minimum of one business day for processing.
