[image-1] Earlier this month, four finalists for the position of Charleston County Public Library executive director answered questions as part of a public forum. Today, CCPL has announced its new executive director, Angela Craig, a regional library leader who manages two major Charlotte libraries.

Craig is expected to step down from her Charlotte positions today and begin her new position in Charleston by May 1.

In a press release Craig said, “I am excited to be part of such a dynamic and dedicated staff and historic community that loves and values their libraries. The future is bright for libraries and we have great things ahead of us at Charleston County.”

Craig will continue the ongoing efforts to finish the library’s voter-approved $108.5 million building and renovation program, which includes five new libraries, the renovation of 13 existing branches, and relocating support staff to free up space in the main library for public use.
