Library, a branch well known for their inspired community projects such as the community garden and the Little Free Library(R) and their unique programs such as the after school teen hangout titled Badges and Bookbags.

Courtney attended the Charleston County School of the Arts as a vocal major. Then she graduated from the College of Charleston with degrees in psychology and sociology. After briefly moving to Virginia to attain a M.Ed. in school psychology from the College of William and Mary, Courtney returned to Charleston to attain her Masters in Library and Information Science at the University of South Carolina. Her favorite part of library school was studying abroad in London, where she got to visit libraries across England and Scotland. While attending school, she worked at both the College of Charleston and the College of William and Mary in administrative roles.
Courtney was the Circulation Librarian at the Charleston Library Society, and is happily joining the Berkeley County Library System to reach more people in South Carolina. After spending much of her youth in Summerville, she is excited to become a part of the community at the Sangaree branch.
Courtney is an avid reader who is currently enjoying historical fiction and young adult titles. She also likes to learn new crafts, and knits and does paper crafts in her free time. She also dabbles in crochet, but is still learning! Some of Courtney‘s favorite things to do at home include watching TV and movies, playing video games, and learning about events in the Charleston area via social media. She newly took up running, so you might find her around town participating in 5K and 10K races; she is already registered for next year’s Cooper River Bridge Run!
BCLS is excited to have Courtney join the team and looks forward to seeing her grow and enhance the library and its community connection.
