The Lexington Main Library serves as the Headquarters Library for the Lexington County Public Library System. Located on a 5 acre site on Augusta Road (U.S. Highway 1) in Lexington, it is a 48,000 ft² building that opened to the public in January 1998.


The public area of the building is comprised of 35,000 ft² on two levels and features shelving capacity for 190,000 items and 238 seats for reading and studying. The upper level contains a large Children's area, a meeting room that can accommodate 100 people, the Circulation area, adult fiction, videos, books-on-tape, periodicals, and newspaper collections. On the lower level is the adult reference and nonfiction collections, two conference rooms, the South Carolina Room for local history and genealogy, the Reference Desk, and the Virtual Library containing 16 Internet access computers.
