Preserving History: A Community Scanning Event
Tuesday, May 17th from 4:00PM to 7:00PM
Do you have treasured historical documents that you've always wanted to share with others but can't bear to part with the original? Drop by this event armed with up to five of your best historical photographs or documents and we will digitize them for you on the spot! After scanning with one of our knowledgeable librarians you will walk away not only with your original documents but also a thumb drive containing a high resolution digital copy of your materials. This is a great way to increase the usability of your photos or treasured historical documents and to finally email a copy to family members or post it on Facebook! More information to come.
