The Joint Base Charleston Library is comprised of two branches: the main Air Base branch and the Weapons Station branch. All military members, retirees, DoD civilians and family members, and DoD contractors working on the installation are eligible to check out materials.
We are here to assist you with your information and research needs. We offer a full range of services for all patrons. Please take a few minutes to read about our services and offerings.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact either branch. Our Library staff will be happy to assist you.
