Chesterfield County Library


View Collections



The first library in Chesterfield County was organized around 1800 in the town of Chatham, as Cheraw was known until 1821 when the town was issued a charter. Much has transpired since then, and now the Chesterfield County Library System has grown to include five libraries in the towns of Chesterfield, Cheraw, Pageland, McBee and Jefferson. All the libraries offer a complete range of services, and is dedicated to serving the citizens of Chesterfield County and its guests. Our vision includes free and open access for all citizens to uncensored information and records of cultural progress, and our mission is to assemble, preserve, and administer, in organized collections, books and related educational and recreational material, in order to promote enlightened citizenship and to enrich personal lives through the communication of ideas.
