The St. Lucie County Public Library System consists of six branch libraries--Kilmer, Hurston, Lakewood Park, Lewis, Morningside and Port St. Lucie--and the Pruitt Campus Library, a joint-use facility operated in cooperation with Indian River State College. Administrative staff are located in the Kilmer Branch. On our Locations and Hours page you can find addresses, phone numbers and hours.

As the Paula A. Lewis Branch Library opened on October 25, 2017, it is not included in our fiscal year 2017 statistics which cover the period from October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017.
