Press Release

Tax season is upon us, and your library is here to help. Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) has partnered with three organizations – AARP, SC Thrive and the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) – to provide free tax preparation assistance at 10 branches throughout the months of February, March, and April.  

“Tax preparation can be challenging and stressful, and many people can’t afford to pay for professional help,” said Karli Gallagher, CCPL’s Adult System Coordinator. “By working with these partner organizations, we’re excited to be able to offer patrons safe, convenient and, most importantly, free assistance at many of our libraries throughout the County.”
