We support important library programs

Together with the support of its members, Charleston Friends of the Library exists to help the Charleston County Public Library be an outstanding community resource.

October 18-24 is National Friends of Libraries Week

Thank you to our volunteers and members!

“The Charleston Friends of the Library play an enormous role in the quality programming you see at your Charleston County Public Library branches. Their funding makes many of the events our patrons experience possible,” said CCPL Executive Director Angela Craig. “We are able to host puppet shows and plays for children, help teens learn to cook or paint, bring in authors and other presenters to teach or enlighten adults and families and so much more! The Friends help our community in a big way and supporting them means supporting us.”

Friends of Libraries Week activities will include a special virtual children’s storytime based on the theme of friendship on Saturday, Oct. 24 at 10 am on the CCPL Facebook page and social media giveaways throughout the week.

National Friends of Libraries Week is coordinated by United for Libraries, a division of the American Library Association with approximately 4,000 personal and group members representing hundreds of thousands of library supporters. United for Libraries supports those who govern, promote, advocate, and fundraise for libraries, and brings together library trustees, advocates, friends, and foundations into a partnership that creates a powerful force for libraries in the 21st century.
