The Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center is pleased to offer two programs on Saturday, April 5th:
First Do No Harm: Caring for your Family Documents will be held at the Main Library (321 Main Street) from 9:30 – 11:30.
Learn how to carefully preserve your documents without breaking the bank at this event celebrating preservation month! You will be provided with the supplies to preserve on-site a document no larger than 11×17 to take home.
Discover what not to do, how to store your documents and more about caring for paper and photographs.
Registration is required, so please contact the library at 563-326-7902.
We will also be holding a film screening of The State of Scott: A View of Davenport in 1948 at our Eastern Avenue branch from 2 – 4pm.
The Free and Independent State of Scott celebrations were a series of parades, shows, fireworks, beauty contests, and other activities that showcased the resiliency—and creativity—of our local post-World War II community.
Original raw footage, of these events was put together by the Davenport Public Library and the Open Cities Film Society into a short feature, which includes memories from local newspaperman Bill Wundram.
No registration is required for this event.
We hope to see you here!
