Did You Know?

There just aren’t enough dollars in the budget to fund all the exciting educational programs and materials our county residents both need and deserve.

The Friends Bridge That Gap!

That is why the Friends of the Kershaw County Library was founded.  Friends take a passionate interest in helping our library be an even more vital part of our community.
