Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any library resources I can use while the Library System is closed?

Yes. The Library System provides a wide range of digital resources to download and stream! From your device, you can download and stream audiobooks, eBooks, magazines, movies, music, and TV shows with your library card. Also, enjoy our learning and research databases and reading lists for adults, kids, and teens.

Also, check out the Seed Library Seed Delivery Service, a temporary service available while supplies last when the Library System is closed.

What if my items are due when you are closed? Will I be charged overdue fines?

The due dates for all checked-out materials have been extended! Please hold on to your items and continue to enjoy them! There will be no overdue fines on materials that are due during the time when library facilities are closed to the public.

Can I put library materials in outdoor book returns?

Not at this time because all book returns are temporarily closed. Please hold onto the items and do not leave them unprotected anywhere outside of a library building.

Why can’t I place a hold on physical items in the collection?

Staff are unable to process holds on items while we are closed. We have temporarily disabled holds on physical items.

I don’t have a Library card. Can I still get one?

Yes. If you don't already have a library card and are a Greenville County resident at least 18 years of age, you may sign up for an eCard to access online resources and some streaming/downloading services. When the Library System reopens, visit any library location to obtain and validate your physical library card to have full access to all Library services.

My library card is about to expire (or already has!). How can I renew it?

We’ve got you covered. All accounts nearing their expiration date have been automatically renewed through June 30, 2020!

I have a question about my account or about the library's digital resources. Is there anyone who can help me?

At this time, the Reference staff are available to take your calls Monday-Friday from 9a-5p at 864-527-9258. You may also email , or use the online chat option available in the bottom right hand corner of this page and all other pages of this website.
