Florence Library to offer virtual programs

Due to social distancing requirements, the Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation Library is offering adult library programs virtually for the remainder of 2020. During this time, the library will be partnering with local agencies and small businesses to showcase what Florence has to offer. 

The first fall virtual program, which began Oct. 1, features the South Carolina Revolutionary Rivers Trail. The trail is part of the National Recreation Trails (NRT) program and follows 66 miles of Lynches River to the confluence with the Pee Dee River and through the swamp areas where General Francis Marion is said to have hidden with his troops during the war. 

Jade Perkins with Friends of the Revolutionary Rivers and the Florence Convention and Visitors Bureau will share information on the trail, the importance the river played in the war, and how individuals and families can “paddle through history.” 

According to Perkins, “fall is the perfect time to get on the river as the weather cools down just a bit, but the water will still feel refreshing.” 

The video can be viewed on the library’s Facebook page. The link to the video can also be found at the library web site, www. florencelibrary.org. 

The Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation Library is located at 509 S. Dargan Street in Florence. For additional information about The South Carolina Revolutionary Rivers Trail contact Jade Perkins at the Florence Convention and Visitors Bureau at (843) 664-0330.
