The South Carolina State Library Foundation works with the SC State Library to provide support to libraries in many ways. Often when there is a natural disaster or other hardship, people want to be able to help South Carolina libraries. SCSL Foundation accepts gifts—monetary donations for collections or programs—or new materials to support a library’s collection. For questions, please contact Denise Lyons([email protected])

All gifts will go to support the ongoing special initiatives and general literacy work of the Foundation. We also have special projects if you would like to designate your gift.

  • Library Collections: support libraries who may have suffered loss or damage through a natural disaster or other hardship
  • Outreach: support ongoing literacy and educational efforts in South Carolina’s communities
  • Pat Feehan YS Grant Program: provides small grants to support youth services staff development in honor of Dr. Pat Feehan, mentor to many in youth and YA services through USC-SLIS
