Honda of South Carolina Supports Timmonsville Library

Honda of South Carolina presented a $10,000 check to Timmonsville branch library manager Rachel Liptak to support library services and programs.  The contribution was presented at the company’s 20th anniversary celebration at HSC headquarters in Timmonsville on Tuesday, July 17, 2018.

Liptak remarked, “Honda of South Carolina President Gary Mabrey talked about dreams as one of Honda’s core values.  That resonated with me, as the library is also a place where we encourage people to dream, and give them the tools to pursue their dreams”.

“We are very excited and grateful for this generous support from Honda of South Carolina,” said Florence County Library System Director Alan Smith.

The Baker Memorial Library opened in Timmonsville in 2010.  For more information about the Florence County Library System, visit www.florencelibrary.org.
