tessiesmom, look up the South Carolina Beekeepers Association website, check the Local Associations page. And/or, check with your local Extension Office, they probably know if there is a beekeeping club(s) in your area.
There are tons of books on beekeeping, and more websites and blogs than you can shake a stick at.
The Club I belong to uses "Beekeeping for Dummies." It's easy to read, written for the beginner backyard beekeeper. I'm sure the folks here have read other books and can give you more advice.
If you are on Pinterest, try searching "Apiary" or "beekeeping" (tip: don't search "bees" or you'll get a bazillion pictures of bumblebees, jewelry, clothes, cakes, crafts, etc)
