The College's library was recently renovated:
-- Adding 200 seats for students, including 140 general seats, 3 small group study rooms, and 50 seats in new flexible lecture/ learning space.
-- Giving students easy access to power outlets for their laptops, phones and numerous other mobile devices.
-- Consolidating the entire book collection (A –Z) on the second floor in mobile shelving.
-- Expanding the Special Collections Reading Room to provide more seats for students and researchers and more reference books
-- Expanding capacity for the library’s unique manuscript and rare book collections.
-- Adding a high-tech lecture room on the third floor.
-- New Starbucks Coffee Shop coming to the first floor.

In addition to adding more seats for studying and power for mobile devices, the improvement project will delineate premier space for the South Carolina Historical Society’s collection of exceptional rare materials. Founded in 1855, the SCHS is the state’s oldest private repository of books, letters, maps, journals, drawing, and photographs about South Carolina history. At the completion of this project, the Addlestone Library will rank among the top Southern Studies research centers in the nation and serve our 21st century students and faculty as a place of serious learning and discovery.
