The Saratoga Sun -

Keep it Under Your Hat

Saratoga Library program to feature digitizing project being undertaken by local historians

 

November 6, 2019



For the past several months, local historians Dick and John Perue have been going through the process of digitizing multiple historic collections. As was reported previously (see “Hold Onto Your Hat-we’re going digital” on page 16 of the Feb. 13 Saratoga Sun), the project began as a process to save the ever expanding collection owned by Dick Perue and were handed down to him by R.I Martin and R.D. Martin, former owners of the Saratoga Sun.

Since then, a number of people have stepped forward to contribute their own historic collections which has included submissions from Elva Evans and Judy Hodges. This task of digitizing local history will soon be explained to those interested as part of a program sponsored by the Saratoga Friends of the Library.

The program, which will consist of a slide show and presentation, will begin at 7 p.m. on Nov. 14 at the Saratoga Branch Library, located at 503 W. Elm Ave. The program will be presented by both Dick and John Perue. They will go over the process of digitizing historic photographs, manuscripts, stories, newspaper clippings, books and diaries.

The program, titled “Keep it Under Your Hat,” is free to attend.

Additional details will come in the Nov. 13 edition of the Saratoga Sun.
