White County Historical Society is reminding everyone that your old photographs are needed to help preserve our history. Due to the late decision to close the Carmi Public Library this Friday, July 5, that date is being removed from the schedule to scan your photos, but there are still eight other scanning times plus your option of submitting your pictures to the special email account: [email protected] Please submit pictures before July 21 and include a short description as well as dates and names.
The remaining scanning dates are listed below, and your pictures will be returned to you that day:
Groff Memorial Library (Grayville)—-Monday July 8 11 am –2 pm
Wednesday July 10 1 pm—5 pm
Friday July 12 1 pm—5 pm
Norris City Memorial Library Monday July 15 1 pm—3 pm
Tuesday July 16 1 pm—4 pm
Friday July 19 1 pm—3 pm
Carmi Public Library Saturday July 13 4 pm—7 pm
Saturday July 20 4 pm—7 pm
The idea behind this project is to create another history book of White County for the future generations to have as a reference. We are asking for photos at least 15 years old. The Society may not use all the pictures submitted, but we will preserve the digital copies for future projects and for research.
