The Hutchinson Public Library is excited to announce a special program, Preserving the Past with Today’s Technology. It begins June 30th and is designed to provide you with all the tools necessary to research, preserve, and retell your family’s story. The program includes a series of lectures, hands on classes, online content, and ongoing personal attention that will help guide you through the process of telling your story. You can attend all of the events, some of the events, or participate entirely online. Our goal is to make the content accessible to as many people as possible. As the
program progresses you will have the opportunity to create a one of a kind family history book, DVD, or self publish a family cookbook with stories and photos. Help is available every step of the way and the result will make a wonderful gift or family heirloom that will be treasured for generations. Preserving the Past with Today’s Technology is free and open to the public but registration is required. The kick off lecture will be held Thursday, June 30th from 6:30-8:30 pm in the 2nd floor library auditorium. To learn more or to sign up, visit www.preservingthepast.org .
