Collection Description

This is the third oldest library in America started in 1748. In 1778 most of the collection was destroyed, but has been rebuilt. This library has valuable newspapers from the 1700s, and Charleston city directories since 1782.[2]

{Please briefly describe the strengths and weaknesses of each collection for genealogists (about two or three sentences for smaller collections).[3] For example, explain the collection size, who (which ethnic, political, or religious groups) are covered, dates covered, jurisdictions covered, record types available, significant indexes, and any noteworthy record loss or gaps.[4]}
