Scan Days for Remembering Seekonk Landmarks

Posted

Seekonk, MA – You can now register for Scan Days at Seekonk Library to record images and stories for the Remembering Seekonk Landmarks project. Appointments are available for specific time slots on the following dates:

  • Fri., July 15
  • Tue., July 19
  • Mon., July 25
  • Wed., August 24
  • Thu., August 25



The goal of this project is to capture memories of the places "that used to be there." To participate you must pre-register and bring a maximum of five original photos to be scanned at the library. The digital images will be emailed to you or an email address of your choice for sharing. Select images may be made available on a digital archive website.


Clear, non-blurry photos up to a maximum size of 8.5“ x 11“ are welcome. Photos will be scanned as is without editing.

Photos must be your own to comply with copyright (e.g. no newspaper clippings or professional photographs).

To be considered for archiving, the photos should showcase a roadside landmark that is no longer in business; we are especially seeking landmarks from 1940 - 1969 from Routes 6, 44, 152, and Fall River Avenue. Personal photos from family businesses in these locations are ideal. Additional information will be requested for identification.

Register with the library in the Events Calendar at www.seekonkpl.org/events  or by calling Adult Services at 508-336-8230 extension 56130.
