CCPL Closing Dorchester Road Regional Library for Renovation Construction

Published

on

Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) is closing the Dorchester Road Regional Library, located at 6325 Dorchester Rd, on Saturday, July 3rd at 5 pm to undergo renovations as part of the ongoing referendum-funded project.

The library, which is the fifth regional branch to receive renovations following the closure of the Otranto Road, Hurd/St. Andrews, John’s Island, and Mt. Pleasant libraries, will receive the following updates:

  • New interior finishes
  • Replacement of shelving
  • Refreshed collection items (books, audiobooks, etc.)
  • New furniture
  • Technology upgrades
  • New designated children and teen areas

Once construction is underway, it is expected to take approximately one year to complete.

During the closure, items placed on hold can be routed to another library by selecting an alternate location when placing a hold online or by calling one of the branches.

Book returns will remain available on site until Wednesday, July 14th. After this date, patrons can return items to any other open location.

In 2014, Charleston County voters passed a $108.5 million referendum to build five libraries and update the existing branches. As part of that project, the Wando Mount Pleasant Library opened in June 2019, the Baxter-Patrick James Island Library opened in November 2019, the St. Paul/Hollywood Library opened on June 8, 2020, and the Bees Ferry West Ashley Library opened on Nov. 2, 2020. Construction on the Keith Summey North Charleston Library is now underway.
