Do you have historic family photos, documents, letters, or other items that offer insight into the City of Deer Park’s past? Join in the Community Scan Day to preserve and contribute to local history! The Deer Park Public Library, in partnership with the Friends of Deer Park Public Library and the City of Deer Park Historical Committee, is hosting our second Community Photo Scan Day on February 16 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Deer Park Public Library.
The public is invited to share their local history and help build a community digital photo collection. Volunteers will scan or photograph your historic photos, slides, documents or objects (limit 10 to 20 items per person). You keep your original items and receive a digital copy for sharing or saving. The Library and the City of Deer Park Historical Committee will keep a copy of the scans for their digital archives. The scans will be posted online where family, friends and the community can access them.We are seeking items that reflect local history, people, places and events. In particular, photos of local scenes and buildings; past residents; social events; the Ship Channel; the San Jacinto Monument; the oil industry; churches; schools; and businesses.
This is a free event. Items will be scanned on a drop-in basis; patrons may experience a wait during busy times. If you have any questions, please contact the Deer Park Public Library at 281-478-7208.
