The Tabb Library has partnered with the Watermen’s Museum to host its new “Bay to Belly” exhibit.

This exhibit tells a story about the Chesapeake Bay’s food and culture.

According to a news release, guests of the library can learn about each type of Bay food source, listen to oral histories from folks who “work the water” and also search through centuries-old recipes.

The exhibit had its grand opening at the Watermen’s Museum in December and opened at the Tabb Library on Jan. 7.

“We are always happy to work with other York County institutions and organizations, like the Watermen’s Museum, to provide programs that inform, encourage, and enlighten,” Tabb Library Director Kevin Smith said in a prepared statement.

The educational display was produced by the Watermen’s Museum and Thomas Nelson Community College with grant support from Virginia Humanities and the Hampton Roads Sanitation District.

The exhibit will remain on display through early February.

You can visit the Library’s website for hours of operation and updates on other available programs.
