The Wonder of Libraries

Charleston County Libraries are the perfect launchpad for ideas.

The subject of health and wellness often defaults to our physical health, but true health is more holistic than just physicality. Our minds need constant nurturing to thrive, and nurture can mean different things to different people. Sometimes, nurturing the mind is about learning a new skill, answering a question, or accomplishing a goal. Other times, nurture is about restoration. Every day, we are bombarded by information, more information than we could ever process, interpret, or apply. If you type the word “library” into Google, there are more than 9 billion results! It’s the same thing for almost any subject. 

In today’s world, it can be difficult to find spaces that offer complete silence and tranquility in the midst of so much noise. Office spaces and coffee shops are often filled with background noise that can cause our minds to wander. There is so much value in silence, as it allows our minds to focus completely without distraction and interruption.

Libraries serve as an oasis from the noise of every day, letting us be creative freely and openly, or, if we prefer, to be still.  Charleston County Public Library System Executive Director Angela Craig is passionate about the role of libraries in our community. "Modern libraries are more than just books,” Angela says. “We are the cornerstones of our communities. We strive to provide access to vital services and resources while continuing to explore new ways to benefit our patrons. At our core, we will always be community connectors."

With so much information available to us at all times due to technology, it can often be intimidating to filter out what is valuable, truthful, and relevant. When stepping into a library, that work is done for you. Information is categorized and sorted based on content, and time period, Libraries offer open and free access to all the information you may need. Whether it be for research, leisure, or just to expand your knowledge on a subject, libraries and librarians make finding information a seamless process.
