Whitman Heritage Digital Collections, a project of Whitman County Library, will visit three library branches in October to scan and digitize historically significant photos from local community members.
Community members are invited to bring up to 15 photos or documents to be digitized and added to the library’s online collection. After scanning, the community members will keep all of their photos and documents, and will also receive a complimentary digitized copy.
Rosalia Branch Oct 12 10am-2pm
Colton Branch Oct 21 4-6pm
Endicott Branch Oct 26 1-5pm
All scanning will be done by appointment only to ensure the best service. To participate, please contact Whitman County Library at 509-397-4366 or email@example.com to set up a time slot for the event or ask any questions about the project.
Whitman Heritage Digital Collections documents the early culture, industry and community life of Whitman County, Washington, and locations throughout Washington’s Palouse Region. The collection is made possible with support and funding from a grant through the Washington State Library and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
