During summer 2014, the College of Charleston’s Marlene and Nathan Addlestone Library underwent a major improvement project to increase study spaces for students and shelving for collections. The improvement project also created premier space for the South Carolina Historical Society’s collection of exceptional rare materials, which the Addlestone Library will house beginning in January 2015.

The renovation added 200 seats for students and 100 power outlets sprinkled around the library so you will never have to worry about a tablet or cellphone dying. There are also three more group study rooms.
The Special Collections Reading Room is expanded to provide more seats for students and researchers and more reference books. The renovation also expanded capacity for the library’s unique manuscript and rare book collections.
