Community photo-sharing event hosted by the public library and Colby College. Bring your historical family photos to the library for digitization and share your migration stories. The afternoon will include free local music, food, workshops on preserving family photos, conversations with local historians, and demonstrations of early photographic processes. We encourage you to bring to the Waterville Public Library up to two historical family photographs for scanning. These should be printed materials (not digital) and unframed (if possible). You may bring additional photos or related materials with you, and use them to tell your migration story on video.
