Below is the list of Beaufort District Collection programs we submitted for the Library's Fall newsletter. We cover a local scandal, a characteristic linking the European explorers to a modern inventor, the ever popular archaeological artifact identification session in honor of Archaeology Month, and a new presentation especially and specifically created for the residents of rural Northern Beaufort County beyond the USMC Air Station about the long and storied history of Prince William's Parish. Each of these four programs are free and open to the public. We'd love to see you at one, two, three, or even all four of the programs! (Please monitor this blog for any changes to the roster.)
