OC ranks near bottom in library computer

April 3, 2014

South Carolina public libraries are equipped with more than 4,000 public computers, but Oconee’s four libraries have only 33 of them. A statewide ranking sorts library systems from the largest number of computers per capita to the smallest. And Oconee finds itself third from the bottom, with less than one-half of a computer for every one thousand county residents. Only public library systems in Lexington and Orangeburg have fewer computers than Oconee. Oconee public library leaders hope to benefit from the county’s proposed one-cent local sales tax addition to make library improvements countywide. The Chapin Memorial Library with 55 computers, is the only library system in the state that averages more than two computers for every one thousand of its county’s residents.
