CHARLESTON, S.C. - Love books? Love beer? Love books and beer? Come help us celebrate National Friends of the Library Week (Oct. 17-23) by quenching your thirst with a brew or two! For every pint sold at Rusty Bull Brewing Co. on Wednesday, October 20 from 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m., $1 will be donated back to Charleston Friends of the Library (CFOL). Come mix and mingle with us, drink some beer and learn more about our services and how we support your local library.

“Stop by to learn more about CFOL and how over the past 38 years we have been advocating for Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) through financial support and spreading information about library services,” said Nulani Bennett, CFOL Operations Manager. “During Friends week, each new member that signs up at Rusty Bull will receive a special gift!”

The Friends will be spending the week of October 17-23, 2021 celebrating the 16th annual celebration of National Friends of Libraries Week. CFOL was established in 1984 and have raised over $1 million for CCPL to date. CCPL Executive Director Angela Craig stated, “CCPL is profoundly grateful to have such a robust and dedicated Friends of the Library group. The book sales are legendary as are the CFOL volunteers who run them. CCPL library programs are directly impacted through Friends support. Essential library programs such as Summer Reading, food literacy and community access all benefit from the ongoing contributions of our wonderful Friends. Our Friends are essential to our success.”

Currently over 300 community members contribute annually to the Friends, and nearly 40 of these contributors actively volunteer their time to assist the group with preparing for all book sales fundraising efforts that include the annual That BIG Book Sale and the multiple branch book sales held throughout the year.
