CORONA HERITAGE ROOM: SAVE & SHARE YOUR PHOTOS PROGRAM
For Immediate Release
April 20, 2018
SAVE & SHARE YOUR PHOTOS PROGRAM
CORONA, CA–An individual, family and community’s cultural heritage can be found in libraries and museums, but it can also be found in the home where precious photographs are displayed, stored and cherished. The Heritage Room would like to provide the community with the opportunity to digitally preserve and share their cultural heritage and memories with the world. We want to encourage the community to bring photographs, slides and negatives to the library for our Save & Share Your Photos program starting April 23.
Schedule an appointment with a Heritage Room staff member to have your images scanned and saved for free. Bring to the appointment the 10 photos, slides or negatives you’ve selected and a flash drive or CD. Your items will be handled with care, staff will help you gather information about the items and use high quality digital scanners to scan the images. All items will be returned at the end of the appointment. Participants will also receive a copy of the scans on the digital storage device that they provide. With your permission, scanned images related to the Corona area will be made accessible online through Corona Heritage Online.
Appointments are available from April 23 through May 31, 2018. If you would like to learn more about this program or would like to schedule an appointment please call Jennifer Marlatt at 951-279-3593 or email Jennifer.Marlatt@coronaca.gov.
