Charleston County Public Library releases proposal to modernize, renovate

“Charleston’s Main Library on Calhoun Street isn’t a bibliophile’s dream, but it’s no nightmare, either. It’s clean, relatively new-looking, quiet. It’s got a good fiction selection and a decent reference section, plus interesting extras like the South Carolina Room, the Jerry and Anita Zucker Holocaust Collection, and the Charleston Archive, where you can find bits of history like old maps of the city and records from the Charleston Orphan House that go all the way back to 1790. One would think that the Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) system is a fairly good one, at least for South Carolina. But according to standards set by the S.C. State Library, that’s not the case. “We’re way, way below,” says Jamie Thomas, CCPL public relations and marketing manager.” (via Charleston City Paper)
