Cheers to Culture – Networking Opportunity


The Library Director, Ray McBride, received this notice today. Sounds like an excellent networking opportunity in case one or more of you would like to go. (I have a metadata training session already scheduled for Dec 10 so I cannot attend.)- Grace


The South Carolina Federation of Museums (SCFM) is pleased to announce the first ever CHEERS TO CULTURE event on December 10, 2015 from 5pm-7pm in Columbia, South Carolina at Mellow Mushroom in The Vista. CHEERS TO CULTURE was created to build relationships between museum professionals, librarians, and archivists in the state. The idea is to build upon our upcoming 2016 conference theme, Celebrating Carolina Cultures ( . South Carolina has some of the best cultural heritage institutions in the country. Our goal is to build a social network of professionals and to find creative partnerships between libraries, archives, and museums to celebrate our cultural heritage institutions.

Eat. Chat. Tweet. Socialize. Drink! We will be live tweeting our discussions on how to strengthen Carolina cultural heritage in our institutions. We envision this as an interactive event with museum professionals, librarians, and archivists across the state having a live Twitter conversation about the power of South Carolina cultural heritage institutions and professionals. Tell others. Invite a fellow librarian, archivist, or museum professional and let’s have fun! CHEERS TO CULTURE! The first round or so of appetizers are on us!
