Because New Year's Day falls on a Sunday, Beaufort County government will be closed Monday, January 2nd, 2017. Regular library schedules resume on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.
Here's what's on tap in the local history unit of the Beaufort County Library for January 2017:
Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays, the Research Room is usually open 9 am to 5 pm with the known exception of January 16th. (see below)
Access to the Research Room is by advance appointment only on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org; 843-255-6468) to make advance arrangements.
We do our best to publicize adjustments to the above schedule. Please note that due to the small size of our staff, unexpected closures of the Research Room might occur with little or no advance notice.
