2020 FOSCL Conference

Due to the current state of emergency with COVID-19, the Friends of South Carolina Libraries have chosen to cancel the 2020 Friends for the Future Conference. We will continue to assess the situation to determine if we are able to reschedule for the fall or next spring.

Those who have already registered will receive an email regarding refund options. If you do not receive an email, please contact Marlena White at or (803) 261-8697.

While we were looking forward to this conference, the health of our Friends is too important.

Thank you for your support of libraries in South Carolina.
