Charleston Time Machine - Segregation and Desegregation at the Charleston County Public Library, 1930–1965 The Charleston County Public Library opened its doors in 1931, but until the early 1960s maintained separate facilities and unequal collections for two classes of customers identified as either Black or white. This divisive practice began to erode in November 1960, when the opening of a racially-integrated library on King Street shocked some members of the community and signaled the twilight of a prejudicial tradition.
