The Florida Department of State's Division of Library & Information Services Presents:

Archives Month Events, October 2013

Join us for a slideshow and an Archives “scan day”


Friday October 11, 2013, from 6 - 8 p.m.

Visitors will be treated to free food, drinks, and a slideshow in the lobby of the R.A. Gray Building.

The slideshow will feature images from the Tallahassee Democrat, many unpublished, showing scenes of Tallahassee life from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s.

Scan Day

Saturday October 12, 2013, from 10 a.m - 4 p.m.

The public is encouraged to bring in original Florida-related family photographs (no digital images please) for possible inclusion in the collections of the State Archives of Florida.

Many of these images will eventually be made available on the Florida Memory website as part of a special “Big Bend Area” photographic collection.

During the scan day, Archives staff will scan photographs and return the originals to the donor. The Archives will not take permanent physical possession of the images unless the donor requests otherwise. Staff will be on hand to discuss the process as well as address any questions.

Please join us for this unique opportunity to preserve your family legacy and share your history with the world.
