Hotter than hades outside, fewer patrons inside, and no events on the calendar 'till September: summertime means project time around the Library. Latest result:
That's the front room of the Barnwell Annex, once home to audio books and lots and lots of beige. Now? It's a snazzy conference room; home to the Library's collection of French books; our 1825 Jean Alexandre Bouchon map of South Carolina; and this fall, home to our restored Mouzon map of South Carolina. It's a great space finally getting put to great use.
Speaking of using space around here, there is now a dedicated page on our website covering the basics of renting our rooms for your events. The info is also available in the downloadable .pdf on said page, if you'd prefer it that way. We've hosted parties, investment groups, genealogical conferences, a couple of weddings, and all sorts of other stuff here before: if you've got a get together, we'd love to host it.
It's not like our event calendar isn't free at the moment.
