This Month's Can't Miss Event

Reading Partners Book Drive

Reading Partners Book Drive
Throughout June

Donate, donate, donate! Residents are encouraged to drop off new or gently used children’s books for students in kindergarten through third grade at six CCPL branches and select Mellow Mushroom locations. Donated books will be distributed through the Reading Partners’ network of tutors to help students in local schools improve their literacy and reading levels. Students will be able to further develop their love of reading by building their own library collections at home with the donated books. This book drive is hosted by the Cynthia Graham Hurd Foundation and Reading Partners, in partnership with CCPL, the Berkeley County Public Library, Live 5 News and Mellow Mushroom.

CCPL's drop-off locations:
Dorchester Road Regional Library

History

The Cynthia Graham Hurd/St. Andrew's Regional Library is one of four regional libraries which were opened between January and June of 1992. Cynthia Graham Hurd/St. Andrew's opened June 18, 1992. The regionals have identical physical plans and are all 14,000 square feet in size. Each has an auditorium for use by the public. 

The branch was renamed on June 21, 2016, to honor Cynthia Graham Hurd, a 31-year library employee who was one of nine people killed in the Emanuel AME Church shooting in June 2015. The ceremony unveiling the new name happened on Hurd's birthday. It would have been her 56th. Hurd was the manager of the St. Andrews Regional Library at the time of her death. 

Hurd, who also spent years of her library career at the John L. Dart branch in downtown Charleston, is memorialized with a mural by artist R. ROBOTS
