The Friends of the Library


Give to the College of Charleston Libraries

At once a keeper of history and advocate of new technology, the College of Charleston Libraries are the region’s premier research institution. Your support impacts every student and faculty member, providing access to resources and services across campus and our community.

As a donor to the College Libraries, you qualify for membership in the Friends. Benefits include a membership card for borrowing privileges and on-site access to digital resources*, invitations to year-round events and Friends-only receptions, publications and recognition as a College of Charleston Foundation donor.

To learn more about how you can help the Libraries meet the needs of future students and faculty, click here or read the latest issue of the Libraries’ magazine, Discovery.

Stay up to date with the Friends on Facebook, Twitter and the Friends e-newsletter.
