Charleston County Public Library will begin providing curbside service on June 8 at all library branches so that patrons can pick up books and other items they’ve placed on hold.

Curbside service will be available Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and Thursdays, 1-7 p.m. Patrons can place holds online at (where you can also ask a librarian questions via chat).

Patrons can sign up for temporary e-cards to access all digital materials and resources.

While the library plans on a phased reopening of all branches soon, you can still check out a wide variety of online programming at

In a recent interview with City Paper, executive director Angela Craig discussed the library’s ever-growing digital catalog: “We’re never going back. The digital platform has allowed us to take the best practices from each branch and share it all over the county.”
