Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) has partnered with three groups to provide free tax preparation assistance at several of its branches through April.

“Tax preparation can be challenging and stressful, and many people can’t afford to pay for professional help,” Karli Gallagher, CCPL’s adult system coordinator said in a press release. “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.”
