The Friends of the Daniel Island Library will sponsor the Daniel Island Harvest Tour of Homes on Saturday, Oct. 5.
This event, now in its sixth year, is a fundraiser for the Daniel Island Library.
The Friends of the Library is a nonprofit organization of volunteers who work with the Berkeley County Libraries to promote library services and their contribution to the community.
Mary Ann Solberg and Vicki Danziger are co- chairs of the annual house tour. “Our house tour lets us introduce many residents and visitors to beautiful Island homes and local authors,” Solberg said. “And we are supporting our wonderful library at the same time.”
Since the Harvest Tour of Homes began in 2008, it has raised over $60,000 for the Daniel Island Library. Proceeds have been used for such items as additional computer workstations, furniture for the library and its much-utilized community meeting room, early literacy and general collection resources, a parking lot book drop, additional shelving, a display case for Island artifacts, and benches and a landscaping upgrade to the library grounds.
Located in the Daniel Island Park neighborhood, the tour homes will feature an Island Park Drive cottage on the Beresford Creek golf course; a home that couples great views with unique architectural elements; a family home that reflects sustainability in building materials and furnishings; and an eco-friendly home featuring a pool, outdoor kitchen and a wine cellar.
Tickets cost $20 payable by cash or check in advance at these locations: Island Expressions on Daniel Island and at Zinnia in Mt. Pleasant. Tickets can also be obtained from House Tour committee members or by check payable to Friends of the DI Library to 121 Iron Bottom Lane, Daniel Island, SC 29492.
In addition, any remaining tickets will be available the day of the tour for $25 at the Daniel Island Library, 2301 Daniel Island Drive.
