Richland Library in downtown Columbia South Carolina is a very breastfeeding and breastpumping friendly public facility.
This building offer a spacious and lockable nursing room for moms away from the rest of visiting library patrons. Mom Nicole S. submitted this great location for our South Carolina moms. Thanks for the share Nicole

"With a private nursing lounge that requires an employee to enter a code to unlock the door, this is one place where you won’t be disturbed by a stranger or curious toddler! But the best part is the comfortable chairs for mom fully equipped with nursing pillow (similar to a Boppy). As if this weren’t a big enough gift, there is even extra seating with books and puzzles if you have other children with you. There is also a sink to wash your hands and changing table if needed. The decor and lighting is so comfortable and relaxing, it’s sometimes hard to leave. This is a favorite choice among Columbia SC Moms Blog contributors.
Note: There are two nursing chairs, so there is a chance you could be sharing a space with another mama (although very seldom from our team’s experiences)."
Some moms call it Nursing Room, Breastfeeding Room, Lactation Station, and others Lactation Room. MomsPumpHere Nursing Room Locator (also Airport Lactation Rooms Locator) is a breastfeeding room finder, nursing room finder, lactation station locator, and lactation room finder. We find moms nice, quiet places to breastfeed or breastpump no matter what they call it. Lactation rooms also help moms relieve oversupply of breast milk which can cause mastitis while breastfeeding.
From Pregnancy and maternity, to infants, toddlers, parenting and motherhood, MomsPumpHere does its best to help new moms make the transition from nursing at home to breastfeeding or breast pumping for their babies in public. Pregnancy was challenging enough mother's health, finding a nice comfortable spot to nurse your baby shouldn't be.
