Myrtle Beach City Council grants more free access to Chapin Memorial Library

At  the August,14 Myrtle Beach City Council meeting, City Council approved the following changes to provide more free access at Chapin Memorial Library...

• Free library cards for veterans....
• Acceptance of County grant to Chapin Library for purchase of library materials.
• Free library cards for residents of counties participating in the Palmetto Library Consortium or other inter-library loan arrangements (Darlington, Georgetown, Horry, Marion, Dillon, Williamsburg and Sumter Counties).

Non-residents of the city now can get free library cards if they live in one of those counties. Previously, the annual card was $20 if you lived outside the city. Snowbirds and others can still get a 90-day Chapin Library card for $8 or an annual card for $20.
