ABBE Libraries open with limited services

To ensure the safety of everyone, the Aiken-Bamberg-Barnwell-Edgefield Regional Library has adapted its services and adjusted the hours of operation at library locations. We look forward to seeing you!

  • Hours of operation have been modified. Please click here to view the hours for each library.
  • Patrons may visit a library for two hours daily to check out materials, pick up holds, and use computers. Patrons may apply for a library card and use copier/scan/fax/email services.
  • Curbside Pick-up for holds will continue at all libraries. Please call your library to schedule a time to pick up your holds.
  • Computers are available for two 45-minute sessions per day, per patron.
  • Patrons are asked to comply with temporary building capacity limits and practice social distancing. Masks are required in all ABBE buildings to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

  • All book drops are open.
  • All returned materials are quarantined for 72 hours. Materials may not be discharged from patron accounts during the quarantine time period. Please contact your library with questions or requests for help with discharging quarantined materials.
