Support Us

There are many ways to support your library. Get involved by joining a local Friends of the Library group, volunteering or making a financial donation.


Library lovers are invited to join their local Friends of the Library group. These dedicated volunteers advocate for libraries, raise funds, sponsor events, and host used book sales. By contributing as a library Friend, you can make a lasting impact for your library.


Financial donations

Library supporters are encouraged to make financial donations to the Friends of the Library or to Lexington County Public Library System. Honorariums may be sent to:

Lexington Main Library
5440 Augusta Road
Lexington, SC 29072
(803) 785-2600

Donating books and other materials

Lexington County Public Library accepts gently used books to enhance the library collection. Before taking materials to a library, contact the library for more information and to confirm what types of donations are currently being accepted.


Are you eager to lend a hand? Volunteers are needed to help organize materials and to support large programs and events. You can participate by joining the Friends or completing the volunteer application.

Our libraries are closed to the public but curbside pickup and online programs are now available. Book drops are open.LEARN MORE »

Ask a Librarian

Support Us

Ask a Librarian is a service available to patrons via phone or email (online chat coming soon). Not only can librarians provide book recommendations for you and your child, they can help you in so many other ways — they can actually help you find answers to the world’s most fascinating questions. For example, they can …

  • Find answers to questions for research in any area of study from aeronautics to zoology
  • ‎Locate information so you can develop a business plan, find sales leads to grow your business and research your competitors
  • ‎Identify alternative approaches to health care and wellness, focusing on perspectives of complementary, holistic and integrated health
  • ‎Research businesses by industry or segment and company size; employment statistics, mapping and traffic modeling
  • ‎And yes, even help with the tough homework assignments students have in elementary, middle, high school or college

So, the real question is … What are you going to Ask a Librarian?
