    Faye Griffin Receives FOSCL’s Outstanding Individual Award

    At its annual meeting on April 21, Friends of South Carolina Libraries (FOSCL) President John Bradley

     presented Darlington County resident Faye Griffin with its Outstanding Individual Award. Grriffin was nominated for her award by Fran Knotts, President of the Friends of the Lamar Library; Sherry Humphries, Lamar Branch Library Manager; Nancy Ray, Darlington County Library Director; Sue Rainey,  former Darlington County Library Director; and  Ken Hughes, former Darlington County Library Board Chairman.
     
    FOSCL’s Outstanding Individual Award seeks to provide recognition to individuals who support and advance the mission of the state’s public libraries – a person who exemplifies a lifelong devotion to libraries through their leadership in the cause of public libraries. 
     
    Griffin’s support for libraries in her community dates back to the ‘60’s and has continued through the decades. The nomination letter cites her many accomplishments including active service on the Darlington County Library Board, spearheading the formation of the Friends of the Lamar Library, successfully advocating and securing funding for a new library  building in Lamar, and then leading successful efforts to improve and expand the library’s grounds and facilities in more recent years. Not resting on her laurels, Griffin is currently involved in securing funding for a second expansion of the library to include a new children’s wing.  As stated in the nomination letter,  “It is hard to describe the passion Mrs. Griffin has for the Lamar Library. When she is not inside participating in meetings or checking out books, you may find her outside in the parking lot picking up branches after a storm, wading through the fountain pond to keep it free of debris or collecting coins that are tossed in by residents making wishes. She is dedicated to providing a quality organization for all ages and all walks of life and is totally committed to “Lifelong Learning @ Lamar Library.” Not only does she deserve the Outstanding Individual Award,  Mrs.  Griffin deserves a Lifetime Achievement Award for all that she has done for the Lamar Library and the Darlington County Library System.
