Gadsden Librarians Preserve Photos

By Alabama Public Radio

Gadsden, AL – A team of volunteers is working to make sure Etowah County's old photographs don't fade out of the picture. Gadsden Public Library employee Danny Crownover is leading a project to scan thousands of pictures to discs. Crownover estimated the library has 6,000 or 7,000 photos that document the county's history. The scanned images are being saved to CD-ROM and to DVD. Copies will be made for the library, the Gadsden Museum of Art and the county's historical societies. That means the photos can be viewed without having to go to the library and hunt through the existing file system.
