Is this the earliest brewing contest in North Carolina? In 1824, the Mecklenburg Agricultural Society offered "Five Dollas in money, to the member who shall produce before the society, at their annual meeting, the best 10 gallons of malt Beer." #ncbeer

Remember the bookmobile? We found this great photo from Madison County, N.C., ca. 1960s, in a scrapbook from the Madison County Public Library that we just digitized. View the whole scrapbook online at http://library.digitalnc.org/cdm/ref/collection/ncmemory/id/108389

We've loaded a bunch of community college yearbooks to DigitalNC recently. These are among the most interesting we've worked on, with great photos of students at work on projects ranging from auto repair to horse-shoeing to cosmetology.

This looks a little precarious. It's the Tarboro High School Band in a parade ca. 1950s. From the M.S. Brown collection at the Edgecombe County Public Library. View the full image online at: http://library.digitalnc.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/ncimages/id/7222/rec/16

Love old yearbooks, we have a great number in our guest rooms from 1920-1950 that we purchased on eBay, and sometimes guests find a family member :-)

This is one of my favorite photos on DigitalNC. It's from the great collection of Charles Killebrew photos from the Braswell Memorial Library in Rocky Mount: http://goo.gl/JxclC.
