The Friends of the Library raise money to fund more than 6,000 programs. For more than 30 years, the Friends of the Library have been donating their time, talent, energy, and resources to ensure that Charleston and Berkeley county communities have access to a first rate library system.
With the support of volunteers from the community, Friends of the Library works to support the network of libraries serving the Charleston County and Berkeley County areas in South Carolina. Through book sales, special events, and library advocacy, Friends of the Library raise funds to support programs, engage local communities in library initiatives, and ensure local and state governments continue to recognize the importance of investing in local libraries.
Money is raised through membership fees, corporate incentives, Friends’ book sale shelves at each library and special fundraising events. Funds from the Friends help support programs and initiatives for children, teens, and adults including the Summer Reading Program.
If you'll be at our match against the Charlotte Independence on Saturday, September 9th, be sure to stop by and see the Friends of the Library on the concourse by the west gate!
