Genealogy

The Laurens County Library has an extensive collection of materials (Genealogy Materials at LCPL) relating to this area’s history and its people. These resources are available to all residents and visitors. Because of the valuable nature of these materials , all must be used in the library.
While the library cannot undertake individual research, the staff will gladly assist you with the use of these resources. A map of the South Carolina Room can be found here (MAP OF ROOM).
The South Carolina Room is open during all regular hours of the library. If you are coming from out of town it is suggested that you call before your visit to make sure that the library will be open for your research. Holidays and staff work may cause a schedule change
