Posted July 19, 2017 in News

July 19, 2017, Charleston SC  -  Charleston County library and government officials broke ground on the newest Mount Pleasant Public Library in an event held on July 25th. The ceremonial groundbreaking for the Carolina Park branch, located at the intersection of Park Avenue and Carolina Park boulevards, sets the stage for actual construction to begin later this year.  

The new library will join Carolina Park Elementary School and Oceanside Collegiate Academy as the newest additions to Carolina Park’s “knowledge hub” – a collection of five outstanding schools complemented by the new library, and all located within the Carolina Park community.

Designs for the 40,000-square-foot facility show a modern library with an inviting outside seating area. Construction for the Carolina Park library is estimated at about $23 million, according to the Charleston County Public Library. 

A 2014 referendum approved five new county libraries and renovations at 13 branches. This is the first groundbreaking for any of the approved new branches. New libraries are also planned in North Charleston, James Island, West Ashley and Hollywood. The other branches are in the design development or demolition process.
