LSTA Grant “Preserving Forsyth’s Past” Progress Report

Wednesday, January 27, 2010 12:09 pm

As many of you know, the Z. Smith Reynolds Library and the Forsyth County Public library are collaborating on an LSTA grant called “Preserving Forsyth’s Past”. This grant reaches out to small Forsyth County organizations to educate them about how to organize and preserve their organizations’ cultural heritage materials. As part of the grant, four public digitization centers have been established as a new library service in the public library system (and as an enhancement to our services at the ZSR Library). The four digitization stations are located at the Central Library, the ZSR Library, and at the Walkertown and Lewisville branches. The centers are equipped with equipment, software and trained staff that can provide people with a practical solution to preserving important local history.

We are mid-way through the grant, having purchased and installed the equipment and help pilot workshops for small groups at the ZSR Library and Central Library. On February 20th there will be a series of workshops at the Lewisville branch on “Preserving and Digitizing Your Records”. These programs will be repeated on Saturday, April 17th at the Walkertown branch and on Saturday June 26th at the Central Library.

On Wednesday, January 27th, I went with Barry Davis, Craig Fansler and Audra Eagle to the Lewisville branch Library to prepare for the February 20th program. If you have not seen this branch library, it is worth the short drive on 241 to Lewisville. The auditorium is going to be perfect for our lecture and hands-on programs.
