The Shelby County Historical Society will be open extended hours on August 9 from 8AM to 8PM to host an open house on Photo Preservation! Bring in your family's old photographs and we'll help you scan them! Come in for a one on one workshop anytime throughout the day to learn how to keep your photos safe and how to scan your photos onto your computer.
When you stop in, your one on one meeting with our collections staff will include a free consultation on preserving your family's photograph collection and scanning tutorial. PLUS whatever photos you bring in, we will scan free of charge (limit of 100 photos). Please bring in a USB flash drive to store your files. USB flash drives can be picked up at Shopko or ordered online for as little as $5. Flash drives will be for sale at the Shelby County Historical Society on an extremely limited basis for $12.
Please note that as a condition of scanning your photographs, the Shelby County Historical Society reserves the right to keep scanned copies of the photographs on file. The original photographs are yours to keep.
