The final stage of the cache is not at the posted coordinates, but it is within the confines of the nearest building. You must first find the first stage which is located outside and at the coordinates provided. Then using the clue, find the final stage. Do not take the clue from the first stage.

When you find the final stage take it to a private reading booth to trade items and sign the log so people will not get suspicious.

Be sure that the cache will close properly. Only small items will fit into this cache.

PLEASE: Replace the cache back exactly where you found it.



Some fun History

The Charleston County Library was established in 1930 and formally opened on January 1, 1931. It was first housed in the Charleston Museum building. Within the first two days four hundred cards were issued and by the end of that February, 8,473 books had been circulated. The library's services expanded rapidly. In June, 1931, the first library branches were opened to make library materials accessible to all county residents. At the end of the first year the library had 9,705 members and had circulated 77,459 books. In 1935 the library had expanded rapidly and it was felt that a separate building was needed. In 1935 the library moved to its new quarters at 94 Rutledge Avenue. By 1954, the quarters at 94 Rutledge had also been outgrown and a public campaign to was launched for construction of a new headquarters library building. A bond issue was put before the voters by County Council and was passed with a large majority. A site was selected on Marion Square where the west wing of the old Citadel was located and the new headquarters building opened its door in November, 1960.

On Sunday, February 8, 1998, the library closed its doors at the 404 King Street address for the last time. A new library was built only a few blocks away, and the grand opening was held Tuesday, April 7, 1998.
