Georgetown County Library is holding a workshop on May 31, June 14 and July 12 from 10 a.m. to noon to teach how to scan and safely store family photos, old scrapbooks and items of the past.
Visit with area museums and cultural groups to discover how they preserve history and learn firsthand the benefit of preservation. Learn how to create an oral history interview, research your family history and maybe discover a long lost relative.
A special presentation will be given by USC professor, Valinda Littlefield on the topic of preservation and why individuals, churches, and other organizations should act now to save our past.
“We want to teach people that preservation can be done by anyone and the benefit is long lasting”, said library director, Dwight McInvaill.

The Heritage Fair is funded by the State Library of South Carolina, the Library Services Technology Act (LSTA), and the Friends of the Georgetown Library.
