Do you have historic family photos, documents, letters, or other items that offer insight into Rockford area’s past? Join in this Community Scan Day to preserve your documents as well as contribute to a local history community digital collection. We will assist you in scanning your historic photos, slides, documents or objects (limit 10 items per person). You keep the originals and we'll send you home with a USB flash drive of your digitized copies! Secure your spot today by contacting Marie at Rockford Public Library: marie@rockfordpubliclibrary.org or (815) 987-6639.

RPL will also keep copies for our digital archives with your permission. We are seeking items that reflect local history, people, places and events. In particular, photos of local scenes and buildings; past residents; homes; social events and clubs; military (Civil War, WWI, WWII, etc.); local railroads; the furniture industry; the machining industry; farming; churches; schools; and businesses.
