An avid reader her whole life, Margaret (Peggy) Reider is lead guide at the Drayton Hall Historic Site. She joined the Charleston County Public Library Board of Trustees in 2009.

Reider's love for reading goes back to one of her very first jobs when she helped stack books in the basement of her hometown library in Chatham, N.J. during the summer of 1952.

A graduate of Bates College in Maine, Reider spent her career directing volunteer programs for various non-profit organizations, including the Girl Scouts, the Retired Senior Volunteer Program, the Youth for Understanding's High School Exchange Program and the American Red Cross.
