Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) will open the renovated Otranto Road Library, located at 2261 Otranto Road in North Charleston, on Monday, August 2nd. The public is invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony beginning at 9 am at the branch.
“As the first of our renovated branches to reopen to the public, we’re excited to show patrons the incredible transformation that has taken place at Otranto,” said CCPL Executive Director Angela Craig. “The updates at the branch offer the surrounding community a modern library equipped with resources, services, and technology that extend well beyond books.”
The Otranto Road Library closed in August 2020 to undergo renovations as part of the ongoing $108.5 million referendum-funded project passed by Charleston County voters in 2014 to build five new libraries and renovate all existing branches. Updates include:
- new interior finishes
- replacement of shelving
- refreshed collection items (books, audiobooks, etc.)
- new furniture
- technology upgrades
- new designated children and teen areas
Three other CCPL branches – John’s Island, Hurd/St. Andrew’s, and Mt. Pleasant – are currently closed for renovations, with the Dorchester Road Library expected to close on July 31st.
The ribbon cutting ceremony will include speakers from the library and Charleston County Government, as well as elected officials. Due to COVID-19, occupancy at the ceremony will be limited. In addition to the ribbon cutting, patrons will have the opportunity to meet the branch staff, take pictures with CCPL’s mascot Owlbert, compete in a scavenger hunt around the library, make their own ice cream, and more.
