July 27, 2023, LEHI, UT— SirsiDynix is thrilled to announce that the South Carolina Library Evergreen Network Delivery System (SC LENDS) has selected Symphony, the most widely installed ILS in history, as their integrated library system. Believing in the power libraries have to uplift and enrich their communities, SirsiDynix is honored to provide services and support for SC LENDS.

Comprised of 20 county libraries and serving approximately half of the counties in South Carolina, the SC LENDS consortium sought a comprehensive platform that would empower staff and patrons alike. With industry-leading security certifications, customer service, and functionality, Symphony, hosted on SaaS, provides an optimal solution.

Plus, companion products, including Enterprise, the Community Engagement Platform, and BLUEcloud Mobile, offer the consortium innovative, user-friendly ways to reach—and make meaningful connections with—their extensive patron base.

“We are excited to work with SirsiDynix to deliver equal access to information and resources through a shared systems approach, partnering with 20 library systems in South Carolina,” says South Carolina State Library Director Leesa M. Aiken. “Providing South Carolina with equitable access to information is a core value of ours, and we feel confident our partnership with SirsiDynix will help further this mission.”

“It is an honor to welcome SC LENDS to the SirsiDynix family,” says SirsiDynix Chief Executive Officer Bill Davison. “With upwards of 1,400,000 patrons, SC LENDS is an invaluable resource to the state of South Carolina. We believe deeply in their ability to spark inspiration in the community and in the lives of patrons, and we couldn’t be prouder to collaborate with them in the years ahead.”


SC LENDS (South Carolina Library Evergreen Network Delivery System) is the South Carolina library automation and lending network for 20 county library systems and the State Library. SC LENDS serves almost half of the state’s population and creates a statewide library network to share resources and materials. South Carolinians with a library card in one of the 20 participating library systems have access to materials beyond what is available at their local libraries and benefit from a shared collection of 2.5 million books and other materials free of charge.
