The Port Washington Library Foundation’s $10,000 grant to the library’s Local History Center funds an historic preservation project.
Thousands of photographs, postcards, maps, written documents and audio-taped interviews about life in Port Washington over the past 200 years are being captured electronically and made available via the library’s website.
The grant allowed the library to create a digital scanning station in its Local History Center. Under the direction of Elly Shodell, archivists prepare materials, enter data, caption, organize and digitize carefully selected examples from the library’s unique historical collections. The project benefits genealogists, researchers, students, teachers, authors, and all those interested in past and present people, places and events of Port Washington.
