Sneak Preview of Digitized Tri-Town News
The Sidney Memorial Public Library invites the public for the unveiling of the first completed part of a project to digitize our local newspapers dating back to 1882. On Monday, November 4th from 5:30 – 7 p.m. part 1 of the project, which includes the Sidney Record and the Sidney Enterprise from 1882 – 1936, will be demonstrated in the library’s Public Computing Center.
This collaboration between the Sidney Library and the Sidney Historical Association to digitize all of the local newspapers currently stored on microfilm at the Historical Association museum will allow the public to view these archives online.
The Friends of the Sidney Libraries and the Sidney Central Schools Alumni Association have provided the matching funds to an O’Connor Foundation grant that the library received last spring for the project. The project, which includes the Sidney Record, The Sidney Enterprise, and the Tri-Town News, will be completed in full in the next year.
Join us at the library for light refreshments, a demonstration, and a chance to try out this long awaited digital archive.
