Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) has postponed the closure of the Dorchester Road Library, located at 6325 Dorchester Rd. The library, which was previously scheduled to close on July 17th, will now close on Saturday, July 31st at 5 pm to undergo renovations as part of the ongoing referendum-funded project. The postponement is due to a change in the renovation construction schedule. The reopening date for the nearby Otranto Road Library, which has been under renovation construction since August 2020, will be announced in the coming weeks.
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. The designs were created by McMillan Pazdan Smith (MPS), while M. B. Kahn is handling construction.
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 our branches.
Book returns will remain available on site through July 28th. Once book returns are closed, 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.
