The Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) will open the Wando Mount Pleasant Library, located at 1400 Carolina Park Boulevard in Mount Pleasant, on Monday, June 10th at 10 am. The public is invited to attend a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 9 am.

“We are thrilled with this example of library innovation and accessibility for all of Charleston County’s residents,” CCPL Executive Director Angela Craig said. “This is one of many new facilities launching system-wide that will provide exceptional library service, as well as access to emerging technologies and resources that the public can embrace as their own.”

This facility is the first of five new libraries to open after the passing of a 2014 $108.5 million referendum calling for new facilities and the renovation and update of the existing branches. The referendum was approved by 74% of Charleston County voters.

The new branch was designed by architecture firm LS3P and built by MB Kahn. Carolina Park Development donated the land for the facility, along with $1.2 million toward its construction.

Construction of the 40,000 square-foot facility began in December 2017. Features include:

  • 250-seat Auditorium
  • Study Rooms
  • Self-check Kiosks
  • Digital Media (Recording) Studio
  • Two Editing Labs
  • Two Creative Studios/Makerspaces
  • Storytime Room
  • Teen Lounge with Gaming Room
  • Outdoor Reading Areas
  • Learning (Computer) Lab

The ribbon cutting ceremony will include speakers from the library and Charleston County Government, as well as elected officials. Patrons will have the opportunity to attend several opening day programs including a special storytime featuring CCPL’s mascot, Owlbert, receive free Owlbert books, learn about the areas rich sweetgrass basket history, attend author talks, and hear a historical account of the 10-mile area by CCPL historian Dr. Nic Butler.
