Three Charleston County Public Library branches, including the main library on Calhoun Street downtown, are suspending in-person services again. The branches, which also include the Mount Pleasant Regional Library and the Wando Mount Pleasant Library, will return to curbside operations beginning Monday.

The suspension of in-person services is due to the statewide uptick in COVID-19 cases and recent “COVID-related closures” at the three branches, according to county library executive director Angela Craig. “We felt that it was in the best interest of the safety of our staff and patrons to return these branches to curbside operations,” she said in a public statement.

The schedule for curbside services at the main, Mt. Pleasant and Wando branches is printed below.

  • Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.  
  • Wednesday from 2 to 7 p.m. 
  • Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
  • Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. (Main Library Only)

Curbside services are also available at the Edisto, Folly, Village and McClellanville branches. Head over to for details on hours for each branch.
