Local History Programs in June 2017

We are taking a bit of a break but local history programs begin anew on June 22! We're happy that Beaufort County Historical Society has agreed to be a co-sponsor of our June programs. We're also going to try out a new way of ticketing local history programs since we've heard grumbling about the reservation system. It may work better; it may not work better; but we are going to give it a go.

Here's what we've decided to test: We'll have 85 free tickets available at Beaufort Branch beginning at 10 am on June 22nd. We'll distribute the tickets until they are gone. In the afternoon, we'll have 100 free tickets available for distribution at Bluffton Branch beginning at 2 pm. The difference in the number of available tickets is because of the size of the respective meeting spaces. Bluffton Branch's Community Room is larger than Beaufort Branch's Meeting Room. You can't call and reserve tickets. You'll need to drop by and pick up no more than 2 tickets - one for you; one for a significant person in your life. 

First up: The local debut of Cate Lineberry's Be Free or Die book.
