Celebrate 2012 with New Harmonies!

Now that the clamor of the holidays is behind us, come get refreshed by immersing yourself in the sounds of music.

  • Visit the New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music exhibit from the Smithsonian Museums. Hours mirror the Beaufort Branch Library operating hours. View the "Celebration of American Music" photographs display, 2nd floor Gallery. Hours: Mondays through Fridays, 9 am until 5 pm until January 30th.
  • Come visit the "Through the Years: Music in Beaufort District" display of selections from our holdings in the BDC Research Room display case. Hours: Mondays through Fridays, 10 am until 5 pm.
  • There are 23 (yes, twenty-three!!!) music related programs during the month of January. Pick one or more to attend. For the complete schedule, click here.

We believe that libraries make a positive contribution to our communities. Your attendance at a library sponsored event, program, or exhibition shows others that you believe that libraries make a positive contribution, too! Please show your support for the Beaufort County Library by attending one (or more) of the scheduled activities this month.
