Get Involved

Check out the many ways to get involved
with the FRIENDS!

Book Sale Volunteering

Are you a high school student looking to volunteer to get community service hours? Are you a book lover who loves to be around books or maybe a past librarian? Or just looking to volunteer your time? We ALWAYS need volunteers to work at our BOOK SALES. ​Volunteer for our next book sale presented by Crews Subaru of Charleston. Check back soon!



Thanks to our supporters, Charleston FRIENDS of the Library can continue to advocate for Charleston County Public Libraries. In return, we’re proud to offer ongoing recognition and experiential benefits. Please contact us at for more information about becoming a supporter!


Sorting Room Volunteering

Are you able to provide a couple of hours a week to help support our book sales? ​ A dedicated group of volunteers receives book donations for our book sales. Together, they sort, price items, and pack donations for our upcoming book sales including That BIG Book Sale.  Sorting Room volunteers are required to complete volunteer training before joining the regular schedule. For more information on our many volunteer opportunities, please contact Leah Donaldson at


Book Donations

We sell book donations to further our mission of supporting Charleston County Public Libraries. Donating your gently used books is a great way to get involved with the FRIENDS. Learn more about what we accept and how to donate.
