Friends of St. George Library

"America's libraries are essential to the continued growth of our nation and they constitute a basic building block of our country. A literate society is needed for a civilized nation. The library is part of the social fabric of a community. Supporting the library strengthens the entire infrastructure of a town or city. Friends of the Library is the facilitating mechanism that can reach the smallest hamlet and the largest city."- Jack Short

About Us:
As Friends of the St George Library, we encourage imagining, dreaming, inquiring, creating and discovering. We encourage the love of good books and a lifetime of reading.  We encourage the library experience for all ages.  We enhance the library and all its branches as advocates to support, strengthen and protect the entire Dorchester County Library system. For more information please call or e-mail Barbara Thomas at 563-4783 or

We are a nonprofit organization of volunteers whose objective is to work with the Dorchester County Library system to promote the library within the community and to enhance its resources and services.  We accomplish this primarily by promoting public involvement in the Library and by raising money through membership, the Friends Store and an ongoing book sale.  Profits benefit the St George Branch of the Dorchester County Library.
