In honor of National Friends of Libraries Week, CFOL launched its refreshed logo (see above).
“When we began 2020, the board aspired to rebranding the Friends to reflect the new talent on our team and to reemphasize the ‘Friends’ in Charleston Friends of the Library,” Susan Hoffius, President of the CFOL said. “National Friends of Libraries Week presented the perfect opportunity to unveil our new look while at the same time recommitting to being the best Friend we can be to Charleston County Public Library.”
