First of Five Renovated Libraries Reopens in Charleston County

Aug 18, 2021 | Projects

The Charleston County Public Library Otranto Road branch reopened in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on August 2. This is the first of the five branch renovations to reopen, and patrons were eager to enjoy the new look and features.

McMillan Pazdan Smith has designed and executed renovations that will promote technology integration, adaptability, and staff productivity. The Otranto branch has newly subdivided areas for kids and young adults with sliding glass partition walls that can be closed to avoid noise disturbances to the adult areas. Quiet rooms were also added that can be used for group meetings or as study rooms.

Visitors to the new libraries will notice similar interior design elements with unique accent colors and wall graphics. You can see that Otranto’s color is YELLOW! (We may be partial).

Charleston County’s Library Renovations will provide residents with tremendous resources and placemaking for all ages.
