Digitize Local History at Scan Bucks County Day

Written by Regina Fried on . Posted in All, Announcements, Bucks County

You’re invited to join a statewide initiative to digitize local history, by sharing your historical photos and documents of pre-1930s life in Bucks County.

Do you have old photographs, negatives, slides, film, letters, or records that document life in Bucks County from the 1920s or earlier? Bring them in, and we’ll help you digitize them, at no cost, using equipment in the library.

Your collection will be preserved, and you’ll have digital copies should your original materials be damaged or lost. Please bring a flash drive with you if you would like a copy of your digitized files.

All digitized files will be cataloged and added to the Pennsylvania Power Library website. Eventually, this state collection will become part of a national database available to anyone.

Because the digitized files will become part of a state and national collection, you will be required to complete a form giving the copyright owner’s permission to archive the files.

Scan Bucks County Day will take place on Saturday, May 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Doylestown District Center Library.
