Special Collections in Belk Library & Information Commons will host an open house in the Rhinehart Room (4th Floor) on Thursday, October 24, 2013, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., in honor of North Carolina Archives Week! This year’s theme is "Home Grown! A Celebration of Food Culture and History." 

You are invited to join us for a display of items from our collections and to learn more about Special Collections and archives in general. Come view cookbooks and recipes from the Appalachian region; letters from the 1800s discussing farming practices; photographs featuring food-based festivals, cooking demonstrations, and Appalachian State University’s Food Services; a farm map from 1922; and much more.  Please email inquiries to Cyndi Harbeson,

There will be all kinds of neat stuff about Appalachian food- come on out!
