Lee County Library Joining SC Lends

The Lee County Library is joining SC Lends, a consortium of 18 county library systems within the state. SC Lends will increase our patrons’ access to materials from approximately 45,000 items to over 2.5 million items, providing them with increased ability to borrow books, movies, audio materials, and other resources!

During preparations for migration to our new library automation software, patrons will be affected by several outages. Once the library is live on SC Lends beginning October 15th, patrons will be asked to update library accounts as well as have access to numerous new features!

The outages and updated features are as follows:
