Record historical family documents.
The library branch is looking for historic material about Paris as a part of its digital collections program and invites everyone to its Digitization Days on Nov. 13 and 14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
At that time, anyone can bring in their historical images or documents to be digitized free of charge. The items will be scanned or photographed in front of you so you can observe the process, and will be returned to your possession immediately. If appropriate, items will be included in the library's new online historical collection with your name and family acknowledged as contributors.
An archival quality CD containing high quality digital versions of your items is available for $5 or bring in a storage device of your own digital where scans can be copied.
The library is currently preparing a digital archive of Brant's history beginning with a project on Hiram "King" Capron, the founder of Paris.
The website launch will be Dec. 6.
For more information, contact reference librarian Christine MacArthur at the Paris library at 442-2433 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
