Don’t leave Grandma in the attic!

familyphotos2Do you have family photographs, historical documents, or old photographs of the local Burlington community?  Want some advice on organizing your historical files or documents?  Drop in between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 12, for our history digitization day!

Digitization allows you to create copies of your photographs and documents that you can share with others and preserve. This minimizes damage to precious originals from everyday handling. You can bring in up to five photos or documents, which we will scan on-site and return immediately to you.
Local historians, genealogists and librarians will be on site to provide advice on organizing, dating, describing and preserving family photographs.  We will also be showing an hour-long video lecture on the “Preservation of Family Photographs” at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Learn more on our website, call us at 755-0760 to pre-register, or just show up on Saturday!  We’d love to see you there.
