Whitman Heritage Scan Day at the Library

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 info@whitcolib.org 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.
