Fannin County Libary introduces new Historic Digitization Project


Fannin County Library Branch Manager Ginia Wood introduces FCPL’s Historic Photographic Digitization Project. She encourages everyone to submit photographs of Fannin County pre-1970’s.


BLUE RIDGE, Ga. – Fannin County Public Library is excited to announce the Fannin County Historic Photographic Digitization Project. FCPL is collaborating with Georgia HomePLACE and The Virtual Library of Georgia to create a digital archive of Fannin County photographs.

All of the photographs must pertain to Fannin County History in some fashion such as historic events, locations, citizens and pre-1970 (if possible).

Patrons will fill out forms allowing the display of their photographs.

Photographic sessions are by appointment only. Patrons will be interviewed during the photographic sessions and answer questions such as: who, what, when, where and why and the context of the photo. After the interview the photos will be digitized and the owner of the photograph will keep their photos.

FCPL has the right to refuse any photo. When FCPL has collected 100 to 200 photographs the collection will be sent to GAHomePlace and they will upload the photos into a public database to be used for research and informational purposes.

We anticipate lots of public interest in this project!
