The Charleston County Public Library Bookmobile that comes to Freshfields was out of commission for repairs, but it is now back the first and third Tuesdays of the month. It is parked in the lot behind Hege’s and BB&T. They stay there from 10:00 am until 11:00 am.
The schedule for the summer is June 19, July 3 & 17, August 7 & 21.
They have a good selection of books on the bus, but you can also request books online and pick them up at the Bookmobile. You can also return books there. Charleston County has had a Bookmobile, or Book Truck as it was known, since 1931.
