The RESERVE Fund

Time to plan ahead…

2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic confronted the Library Society with an unprecedented situation. Our Board of Trustees and the Chair share a concern that the Library Society needs to be better prepared for unforeseen events that so often lie just beyond our ability to plan and predict. The story of CLS is indeed one of survival, from the devastating hurricane of 1752, to fires, earthquakes, wars, and economic depression. We stand here today, still, a beacon of intellectual, cultural, and social pursuit to Charleston and beyond.

We call upon you for your support in establishing a new RESERVE Fund. Your contributions dedicated to this fund will ensure the health and stability of the Library Society, and help build a safety net that will allow us to weather future challenges. Every gift helps, it is tax deductible as allowed by the law, and is most appreciated.
