Whereas the, Charleston Library Society, of Charleston, is a public library, in the sense of the Constitution, and is therefore exempt from taxation, and the lot at the north-west corner of Broad and Church streets, whereon the Charleston Library building now stands, was forfeited to the State, in May, 1874, for non-payment of taxes for the year eighteen hundred and seventy-three.

Be it resolved by the Senate and Plouse of Representatives of the State of South Carolina, now met and sitting in General Assembly, and by the authority of the same, That the said lot be expunged from the record of forfeited lands, and that the title thereof be restored to the Charleston Library Society, and that said lot and buildings be held by said society free of taxes; and on the payment by the Charleston Library Society of all taxes, penalties and costs to the County Treasurer, which are due upon the lot in Meeting Street whereon the Apprentices' and Minors' Library building formerly stood, the County Auditor shall expunge the same from the forfeited land record of the County of Charleston, and restore the title of said lot to the Charleston Library Society.
