Summer Reading returns to Beaufort County Library

CHARLESTON, S.C. (Lowcountry Weekend) - Beaufort County Library System and Beaufort County School District have again teamed up for a Summer Reading and lunch programs at all library locations this Summer.

The reading program begins June 1 and runs through July 31. Game boards will be available at all County Library locations beginning June 1.

Registration is not required and neither is having a library card.

Along with the Summer reading program, lunches will be available free of charge at all library branches Monday through Friday, beginning June 7 through Aug. 4. Any Beaufort County resident aged 0-18 can receive lunch. Lunch will be provided at the library branch and children must stay at the library while they eat.
