There have been a number of significant contributions made that have been expended in areas designated by contributors. Recent examples of directed funds projects are:
- Large Print adult books
- More than one thousand children’s books for St. Helena Branch Library
- WeeRead, a program for children from birth to pre-school and their parents. This program introduces parents to reading to their children, and children to reading.
- Early Childhood Literacy, a program directed toward young children who have had little exposure to the outside world, including reading and speech.
- Book purchases for specific Beaufort County Library branches. These purchases supplement the Library’s own purchases. Donors requested that books be purchased for use at their branch libraries.
