Bring on the books! Mount Pleasant’s popular Carolina Park will be home to a brand new Charleston County Public Library. Steps from Wando High School, the Center for Advanced Studies, The Children’s Center and the new Carolina Park Elementary School, the library will be a great addition for neighborhood residents and the surrounding community! This new facility will offer 40,000 square feet of library space, the largest in the county. "While some people think libraries are a thing of the past, Charleston County residents have shown they need and want and love libraries," Library Board Chairman Janet Segal said. Construction on the new library is scheduled to begin in May of 2017.
This new library will provide an additional option to Mount Pleasant’s existing library on Anna Knapp Boulevard. The new facility is designed to offer both increased space and the latest in technology. “We’ll have plenty of study space, venues for community meetings, more young adult resources and lots of new books,” said Doug Henderson, executive director of the Charleston County Library System. “We want it to be a flagship library.” The Charleston County Public Library reported in early December that the Mount Pleasant library design team has created multiple schematic proposals to be reviewed by CCPL and they are currently in the process of “fine-tuning these possibilities to meet the specific needs of the local community.”
Set on more than 1,700 acres in north Mount Pleasant, Carolina Park offers residents an incredible range of amenities and facilities in addition to the new library. Along with highly ranked schools including Wando High School, the Wando Center for Advanced Studies, the future Carolina Park Elementary School (currently under construction), Oceanside Collegiate Academy charter high school (construction starting soon), the property also incorporates Roper St. Francis Mount Pleasant Hospital, two churches and miles of trails for hiking and biking. The housing options are equally extensive, featuring townhomes, cottage homes, classic single-family homes and Riverside custom homes from eight of the region’s premier builders. Village homes start in the $300’s while homes in Riverside range from the $500’s to more than $1 million. First rate amenities top the list too with a spectacular resident’s club featuring a Jr. Olympic-sized pool, outdoor pavilion, tennis courts and playground.
