Librarian Cynthia Hurd dedicated her life to books, educating others

Librarian Cynthia Hurd dedicated her life to books, educating others.

Ms. Hurd worked with the Charleston County’s libraries for 31 years, serving as branch manager of the John L. Dart Branch from 1990 to 2011 before becoming manager of the St. Andrews Regional Library, which county officials said Thursday would be named in her honor. Ms. Hurd graduated from Clark Atlanta University  and earned a master’s degree in library science from the University of South Carolina.

Librarian Cynthia Hurd was among the victims in the mass murder of nine people who gathered Wednesday night for Bible study at a landmark black church . This has shaken a city whose history from slavery to the Civil War to the present is inseparable from the nation’s anguished struggle with race.

Donations in Ms. Hurd's memory may be made to the Charleston Public Library:
Friends of the Charleston County Public Library

There’s even an option to make it in memory/tribute to someone.
