Hamilton East Public Library in Noblesville says, “When a photograph dies, a part of history is lost.”
Do you have any historic old photographs of Noblesville or Hamilton Co. tucked away in boxes, drawers or cabinets? Any pre-1965 photographs of buildings, homes or structures that no long exist, or of special events such as church homecomings, family reunions, parades or gatherings held in local places?
Don’t let time and deterioration take a toll on those special pictures. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 20, the library is encouraging the public to bring any old photos to the Indiana Room inside the library, 1 Library Plaza, to have the scanned and digitized.
Guests will retain the original photographs and receive digital copies on DVD or their own flash drive. With permission, a digital copy will become part of the Indiana Room collection and Indiana Memory website. Copyrighted photos cannot be accepted. Each scanning session is limited to 10 photos. For those with larger collections, appointments can be made at a later time.
For more, call the Indiana Room at 770-3206.
