It's a Pirate's Life for Me! (at least for today)

Here's a fun commemoration for you to observe: It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day!    Fancy a sing song? There's even a "drunken sailor" sing along (adult alcoholic beverage optional) if the spirits so move you! (bad pun intended)

Bluffton and Hilton Head Branch Libraries are getting into the spirits (bad pun intended again), too.    (But rest assured, there will be absolutely no Drunken Sailors on board!)   

 Talk Like A Pirate Day Pirate Party
“Ahoy me hearties, Come to our Pirate Party if you dare! See you on the poop deck for stories and shanties mates.” 
Ages 4 and up.

If you’re feeling brave, join us for crazy stories filled with pirates, their silly sidekick parrots, and lots of buried treasure. Hopefully we won’t make you walk the gangplank!

If you'd like to give the topic of Pirates a more serious consideration, (and piracy is a very serious topic) read our local history web page here. Or check out our list of materials on Pirates within our library system. Or search our "Points of View Reference Center," a subscription database within the DISCUS Resources suite of research help we provide on the topic of modern day Piracy
