The event will also feature a rare book auction.

The Charleston County Library system continues to see a huge surge in patron interest: from people attending computer and resume preparation classes, to those enjoying free writing workshops led by Charleston’s best writers, to children’s story hours, Metropolitan Opera simulcast and of course books, DVDs, CDs and more. And it’s all free. For more than 30 years, The Friends of the Library, a non-profit, has been busy raising money to help the library support all of these exciting community events.
