Watch the new BDC Take Shape

If you want to monitor the progress of the installation of the compact shelving array in the new BDC Research Room, click here. Dennis Adams (whose office is right next door to the construction. Thank you, Dennis and everyone else who is being patient about the noise!) has agreed to take photographs every couple of days of the progress and post them into the "Beaufort County Library" FLICKR account for us. Watch the new BDC take shape!
