Going, going, ...

Time is running out for you to be among the 15 people who get to go into the BDC's storage area to see seldom-on-display materials we share through the Library's special local history collection and archives.

As an added treat, folks who register will also get to see the "Creating the Carolinas" traveling exhibit loaned to us by the South Carolina Historical Society up close and personal on that date.  We'll begin the tour, surrounded by the "Creating the Carolinas" exhibit, with a very short presentation about the BDC's programs, services, and policies, and then head into the locked storage area to view the treasures. This is the only opportunity you have to see precious items from the BDC and the South Carolina Historical Society up close and personal at precisely the same time.

The 1.5 hour tour is free. In keeping with the "Archives and the Natural Environment" theme, this year we'll highlight some of the many natural history related treasures we hold in trust for the community. (Trust me, you'll be surprised.)  Because the BDC area is rather small, we must limit the number of participants to 15 people over age twelve. Please no walk-ins. Register today to join us! cseabrook@bcgov.net; 843-255-6468. Registration closes at Noon on Friday, Oct. 10th.

The following Saturday, Oct. 18th, join us for 

Reminder: The Library system is closed Wed., Oct. 8th for Staff In-Service day. Regular hours resume Thursday, Oct. 9th.
