Looking for new friends?

Come join our group!

Nurture your child's love of reading. Get to know your library inside and out. Parents, grandparents, neighbors and friends are invited to accompany their children to enjoy stories, songs, dance, games, arts and crafts at weekly programs. Soak up literacy skills, pre-school criteria, culture and all kinds of practical knowledge while having fun.

American Girl Doll Lending Program
We are excited to announce our new American Girl Doll lending program. Children from age seven to thirteen will be able to borrow an American Girl Kit from the library. Each kit contains an American Girl Doll, a corresponding book, and a journal for the child to record the doll’s journey.
Kits must be checked out by a parent or guardian.
Drop by the library in Beaufort or call 252-728-2050 to request a doll. We have Addy, Kaya, Kit and Samantha.
