At the request of one of our readers and library users, we will be expanding our newsletter in 2018.  This will be the last one focused mostly on our new materials.  In the future, other Carolina Room staff members will also be submitting articles related to their responsibilities in the Carolina Room or sharing information on topics we hope you will find interesting.  We plan to add new content to, have more programs, complete some archival collections to make them available for research, and add more books and maps!  If you have never looked at all the current content on, I hope you will take some time this winter to investigate an exhibit or explore the entire site. is our way of connecting with you 24/7!
