Socastee Library To Close For Inventory

Conway, South Carolina – The Socastee branch of the Horry County Memorial Library will be closed Monday, February 11, 2013, and Tuesday, February 12, 2013, in order to conduct an inventory. The Horry County Memorial Library Board of Trustees approves each branch to close once every three years to complete an inventory of all materials. Inventories are necessary to maintain an accurate catalog of materials on hand. Due to the large size of the Library’s collection, it takes at least two days to perform.

Patrons are encouraged to visit one of the other nine branches. Branch locations, operating hours, and more are available on the website at
