New Digital Collection: Pink Palace Photograph Collection

We couldn’t be more thrilled to tell you that the Pink Palace Photograph Collection is coming to a computer screen near you.

Volunteer Becky Muska has joined our fold and is beginning the daunting task of digitizing this large collection. Though the collection has been at the library since an equipment-for-images trade with the Pink Palace in 1976, this will be the first time that it will be possible to browse or search the wonderful photos that make up the collection.

The process is just getting started so check back every few weeks to see the new images that will be added. You’ll find pictures of all sorts of things–buildings, boats, people, places… I couldn’t list it all if I tried.
