About the South Carolina State Library


The South Carolina State Library develops, supports, and sustains a thriving statewide community of learners committed to making South Carolina stronger. The Library serves the people of South Carolina by supporting state government and libraries to provide opportunities for learning in a changing environment. It is the primary administrator of federal and state support for the state's libraries. In 1969, as the result of action by the General Assembly, the State Library Board was redesignated as the South Carolina State Library and assumed responsibility for public library development, library service for state institutions, service for the blind and physically handicapped, and library service to state government agencies. Headquartered in Columbia, S.C., the Library is funded by the state of South Carolina, by the federal government through the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and other sources.

Gator Family,

Good Afternoon!  I hope this message finds you and your family healthy.  As you may have heard, all schools in South Carolina will be closed until April 30.  Our district will continue to use E-learning as a means to provide educational opportunities for students.  Our teachers will continue to work diligently to develop interactive lessons and to communicate with their students.  I understand that these are uncharted waters for everyone and it has caused more stress than normal for our parents, our students, and our teachers.  Remember, we are all in this together so let’s continue to support and take care of our families and loved ones. 

The week of March 30 April 2:

  • March 30 and 31 teachers will be working to prepare lessons for students for the upcoming weeks.  Teachers will not be holding office hours during this time. 
  • Starting April 1, teachers will resume their normal office hours.
  • Spring Break officially starts on April 10 and extends through April 17.  Teachers will not hold office hours during this time and students will not have E-Learning assignments.
  • There will be someone at the school from 8:00 – 1:00, Monday – Thursday, next week.  Please call during this time if you would like to come by and pick-up a Chromebook that you did not receive during the previous Chromebook distribution. 


Parents, as always if you have any questions or concerns, please free feel to email me at
