Upcoming Cultural Heritage Programs

Wow! We had 73 people at last night's BDC@ Beaufort Branch "Tide of Death" presentation. Thanks to all for such a great turn-out. 

Reminder: The Beaufort County Library is closed Monday, September 1st to celebrate Labor Day.  (Does anyone else see the irony in this particular holiday?) 

Next Thursday:
Just drop in as we muddle through how to select the best digital images, devise appropriate labeling, and any other topics that might come up during an all-in discussion.  Bring your devices if at all possible.

Historic Port Royal Foundations is hosting Daryl Ferguson of the Santa Elena Foundation  on September 9th.  The Santa Elena Foundation, an independent nonprofit foundation, intends to establish an interactive center about the history of the colonization of North America, promoting the history of the first Europeans to reside in what later became Beaufort District, the Spanish.

Most libraries, museums, archives, and historical preservation societies begin Fall programming in September.  Be sure to check out other programs offered by Beaufort County Historical Resources Consortium members: Beaufort County Historical Society, Beaufort History Museum, Bluffton Historical Preservation Society, Coastal Discovery Museum, Gullah/Geechee Heritage Library, and Penn Center among others.
