Borrow A Book

Keep Charleston Beautiful has a small collection of environmentally themed books, purchased via a generous grant from the City of Charleston. These books are most suitable for grades K through 4, and are a great supplement for an environmental lesson or activity. Book topics cover the subjects of recycling, composting, reducing waste, pollinators, volunteerism, climate change, marine creatures, and many others.
