All Lexington County Public Library branches are open —offering limited in-person services such as browsing, computers by appointment and mobile printing. Our highest priority is the health and well-being of our patrons, staff and volunteers. The library is closely monitoring the latest information and guidelines provided by the CDC and DHEC and we’ll continue to evaluate services daily. We encourage the public to practice social distancing. Limited services being offered in the branches include:
Patrons are required to have temperature taken upon entering and wear a mask at all times while inside of a library facility, and masks should fully cover the nose and mouth. All library buildings are adhering to occupancy limits, so you may experience a wait before entering a branch. We encourage patrons to limit time in the building to allow more patrons to have an opportunity to use the library.

Adults are reading Young Adult (YA) literature. Yeah, adult adults — grown people with jobs, who pay their own bills, chat about interest rates on mortgages, or maybe even have young adult children themselves. Not only are they reading it, they also make up most of YA literature’s readership.
