The South Carolina Legislative Council is offering access to the unannotated South Carolina Code of Laws on the Internet as a service to the public. The unannotated South Carolina Code on the General Assembly's website is now current through the 2010 session. The unannotated South Carolina Code, consisting only of Code text and numbering, may be copied from this website at the reader's expense and effort without need for permission.
The Legislative Council is unable to assist users of this service with legal questions. Also, legislative staff cannot respond to requests for legal advice or the application of the law to specific facts. Therefore, to understand and protect your legal rights, you should consult your own private lawyer regarding all legal questions.
While every effort was made to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the unannotated South Carolina Code available on the South Carolina General Assembly's website, the unannotated South Carolina Code is not official, and the state agencies preparing this website and the General Assembly are not responsible for any errors or omissions which may occur in these files. Only the current published volumes of the South Carolina Code of Laws Annotated and any pertinent acts and joint resolutions contain the official version.
Please note that the Legislative Council is not able to respond to individual inquiries regarding research or the features, format, or use of this website. However, you may notify Legislative Printing, Information and Technology Systems at LPITS@scstatehouse.gov regarding any apparent errors or omissions in content of Code sections on this website, in which case LPITS will relay the information to appropriate staff members of the South Carolina Legislative Council for investigation.

STATE AND COUNTY AID FOR SCHOOL LIBRARIES
Procedures for obtaining state and county aid; monies raised by public and private subscriptions.
Whenever the friends and patrons of a public school raise, from public subscription or otherwise, a sum not less than five dollars nor more than twenty-five dollars and deposit it with the county treasurer to the credit of their school district, the county board of education, through the county superintendent of education, shall credit such district with an equal amount, to be drawn from the county board fund or, if the county board fund has been exhausted, to be drawn from the general school fund of the county. The county superintendent shall then make application to the State Superintendent of Education for an amount equal to the sum raised, by private subscription or otherwise, and deposit it with the county treasurer. All the money resulting from private subscription or otherwise, from county funds, or from State funds shall be held in the county treasury to the credit of the school district and shall be paid out upon the warrant of the board of school district trustees, duly approved and countersigned by the county superintendent of education.
Nothing herein shall prevent other funds greater than those mentioned herein being raised by private subscription and applied by the county superintendent of education to the purposes herein set forth.
Disbursement of funds; list of books purchased.
The funds provided under Section 60-9-10 shall be expended only for the establishment of a library, for the enlargement of a library or for the purchase of supplementary readers to be kept in the school library. Any free public school may participate in this fund but only once during a fiscal year. The trustees or teachers of any school receiving the benefits of this section and Section 60-9-10 shall file, both with the county superintendent of education and with the State Superintendent of Education, a correct and legible list of the books purchased.
Duties of State Board of Education.
The State Board of Education shall select and publish a list of library books and also a list of supplementary readers and shall make all necessary rules and regulations concerning the use and care of libraries.
