ELMHURST - The Elmhurst History Museum staff is ready to help residents organize their personal photos by offering free scanning and digitization during the Digitize Your Elmhurst Photos Day, which will be held from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Aug. 4.
The museum also is seeking photographs pertaining to Elmhurst history to add to the growing digital collection. Whether it’s pictures of Elmhurst homes, family, schools, streets and scenery or large gatherings such as parades and parties and asks residents to bring them to Digitization Day.
The museum staff will be on hand to scan them for the collection [with written permission] and provide participants with digital copies to keep. Photos can be scanned on the spot and returned along with an email link to the digitized copies, or they can be dropped off for pickup at a later time.
Interested Elmhurst residents who can’t make it on Aug. 4 and have photos to be digitized are encouraged to call Elmhurst History Museum and make and appointment for a convenient date. For information, contact Dan Lund, curator of collections, at 630-530-3322.
