About York County Library


York County Library is located at 138 East Black Street, Rock Hill, SC 29730. It was formed in 1966 by the merger of community libraries in Rock Hill, Clover, Kings Mountain, Fort Mill, and York, South Carolina. As the largest library, Rock Hill was designated as the main library. A branch at Lake Wylie was added in 1989. When the main library was constructed in 1982, a room for housing local history materials was opened and designated the Nan Weller Carson Room in honor of her work collecting materials for this collection.
