Join us for this four-part reading, viewing, and discussion series for adults led by Dr. Barbara DuPont of the Greenwood Genetics Center. The Greenwood County Library was one of 75 rural public libraries nationwide receiving grants to host the series. Pushing the Limits brings together books and videos featuring authors, scientists, and everyday people who thrive on exploring the natural world through connection, nature, survival, and knowledge. The Project Scholar/Moderator is Dr. Barbara R. DuPont, Cytogenetics Senior Director, Greenwood Genetic Center. Exhibits from The Museum will be on display at each session. For more information about the program, please call Prudence A. Taylor at 941-3030 or email email@example.com. Books for the program may be picked up at the Circulation Desk at the Greenwood County Library, beginning in January. Local support for this program comes from the Friends of the Greenwood County Library System, the Greenwood County Library, and The Museum.
