This Month's Can't Miss Event

Read for the Record

Read for the Record
Thursday, Oct. 19 at 3:30 p.m.

Participate in the world's largest shared reading experience. This year’s featured book is "Quackers" by Liz Wong.

A cat who thinks he’s a duck?  He must be Quackers!! This quirky funny book is about standing out, fitting in, and building a life with room for all.

Quackers is a duck. Sure, he may have paws and whiskers. And his quacks might sound more like…well, meows, but he lives among ducks, everyone he knows is a duck, and he’s happy. Then Quackers meets another duck who looks like him (and talks like him, too!)—but he calls himself a cat. So silly!

History

The McClellanville Library is located in a village 50 miles north of Charleston. The McClellanville community had a library long before McClellanville became a village and long before the establishment of the Charleston County Public Library system.

The library began in 1886 when McClellanville was just a "summering place," and one of the summer visitors organized a library society with a group of women in the community. The library continued to operate until June 19, 1931 when it became part of the Charleston Free Library system (now the Charleston County Library system).

The library was housed in the school building for many years, and was later moved to the town building on Pinckney Street. The present building on Baker Street is 1,280 square feet.
