Construction of the new St. Paul’s Hollywood Library branch is underway. Charleston County Public Library and Charleston County Government officials kicked off the construction of the new facility during a groundbreaking ceremony on October 30th. The 15,000-square foot facility will be located on Highway 165 next to the new Hollywood Town Hall.
The new library will include:
- Adult, children, and teen areas
- An auditorium that can be divided into two meeting rooms (100-person capacity)
- A meeting room/maker space for do-it-yourself projects (25-person capacity)
- Outdoor areas
- Learning Lab (Computer Instruction Room)
- Contemporary Lowcountry Design
The library branch, which is scheduled to open in late 2019, will be part of a larger municipal complex that will include the new Hollywood Town Hall building as well as an aquatics center operated by the Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission.
Local residents approved a referendum to build five new libraries, and renovate or upgrade 13 others in November 2014. The first phase of the overall project was designed to solicit community input for the five new library locations. One of CCPL’s top priorities during this process involved obtaining practical information from public library users. The Glick Boehm architectural firm presented their design of the new branch during a community meeting in June 2017. Click here to see the design.
