The yearbook collection was digitized in 2013 and made available for public use in the winter of 2014.
The yearbook collection is composed of donated yearbooks from Bee County schools and includes the Trojan from A. C. Jones high school, the Bobcat from the Skidmore-Tynan high school, and the Cougar from the Coastal Bend College.
Available yearbooks range from 1898 to 2008. These items are available for viewing on the second floor of the library; they are not available for checkout.
The digital newspaper collection is made possible through a grant from the Coastal Bend Foundation. The original newspapers were given to the library for communal use by the Beeville Publishing Company/The Bee-Picayune.
Digital newspaper dates range from 1886 to 1941. Additional newspaper editions (1942-one year previous) are available for viewing via microfilm on the second floor of the library.
The Joe Barnhart Bee County Library hopes to continue to grow the digital collection and thanks the Coastal Bend Foundation and the Beeville Publishing Company for their support of this project.
Support for the digital library was provided by a grant from the Coastal Bend Community Foundation.
Digital items may be downloaded, printed, and otherwise made available for private use.
For commercials use of any of the items in the Joe Barnhart Bee County Library Digital Library please contact the Library Director at 361.362.4901 x.2008.
