Be a Part of Lennox & Addington’s Story – Scan your Photos to the Archives!

Are you part of Lennox and Addington County’s story? Then we want to hear about it! 

Share photographs with us during the month of April and be part of our community digitization project. What’s in for you? You’ll walk away with free prints of your scanned photographs to share so your original copies stay safe for a long time.

For the month of April, you’re encouraged to bring 1-5 photographs of anything or anyone in Lennox and Addington County to the Archives. Photographs can be of yourself growing up here, your ancestors from a century ago, a business or even your family participating in a COVID-19 activity while stuck at home. Anything goes as long as you can tell us the story behind it!

 

Here’s how it works:

  • You bring 1-5 photographs of any size and colour to the Archives
  • We scan your photographs, you tell us the story behind them
  • You walk away with 8×10 colour prints of your photographs 

Scanned images become part of the permanent digital collection at the Archives of Lennox and Addington to be shared with the community
