Due to social distancing requirements, the Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation Library will be 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 will feature the South Carolina Revolutionary Rivers Trail and can be viewed starting October 1, 2020. 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.”
