Established December 28, 1748, the Charleston Library Society has a rich history as a “cultural institution for life-long learning, serving its members, the Lowcountry community and scholars through access to its rich collection of books, manuscripts and archival material and programs promoting discussion and understanding of the ideas they contain.” For more information, see their website here.
The annual meeting of the membership, scheduled for January 17, 2023, includes a presentation by John Grisham, the author of forty-seven consecutive #1 bestsellers. Although tickets are sold out, there is a waiting list. For more information and to access the waitlist, click here.
