“Jocassee: Jewel of the Escarpment” explores the beauty and diverse flora found around Lake Jocasse—one of National Geographic’s last best places on earth. A 7,500-acre reservoir built by Duke Power in 1973, the lake in northwest South Carolina is fed by the waters of Transylvania County, including the Horsepasture, Toxaway, Thompson and Whitewater rivers.
The library will serve popcorn and other light refreshments.

The Discover Natural Transylvania program series on the first Thursday of most months is provided by the Friends of the Library. For additional information contact Marcy at 828-884-1820 or
