You can try SharpMap if you want to use LGPL code.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

There are multiple options to use when reading Shapefile with C#, SharpMap and EasyGIS.Net are already mentioned. DotSpatial is another opensource project. Here is a tutorial link as well.

With respect to performance, personally I have found DotSpatial doing much better than SharpMap with large dataset, and DotSpatial raster support is also excellent.
