Jan 21 & 28 - Scanning Saturdays at Oberlin Public Library Craft Room

Scanning Saturdays are back on January 21 and 28 and we are coming to a location near you, the Oberlin Public Library! Do you want a high-quality digital copy of your grandmother's high school graduation photo? Or maybe of a snapshot of your uncle when he was in the service? Or a slide from that memorable vacation? From families, to parties, to pets, to homes, the Oberlin Heritage Center can help you preserve and share your special photographic memories. While the scanner is scanning, Collections Manager Maren McKee will be happy to share ideas for storing and labeling your photo collection. Participants are asked to bring a flash drive to take copies home. We will be offering scanning services from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. & 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m on both January 21 and 28. Appointments for this free service to scan up to 10 items are not required but are highly recommended. Make an appointment now by contacting Maren at [email protected] or (440) 774-1700.


OHC is also looking to expand our collection of Oberlin images from the recent past. If you have photos that document community events, church history, neighborhoods, families, business etc. from the 1960s on and would be willing to share copies with OHC, please consider making an appointment during Scanning Saturdays.
