For more than 30 years, the Charleston Friends of the Library has been doing what Friends do best:  graciously giving our time, talent, energy, and resources to ensure that the entire Charleston community has access to a first-rate library system.

How We Support the Library

The Charleston Friends of the Library raise money to fund more than 6,000 programs sponsored annually by the Charleston County Public Library, including:

*    The annual Summer Reading programs for all ages                                                  

*    Author book signings and lectures

*    Staff development and training

*    Diverse music and crafting events

*   Plus many other performances, business programs, & workshops.

In order to achieve our goals, we rely on the Charleston community and library friends like yourself.  Your donations of time, money, and books, enable us to continue advocating for and enhancing our library system.
