With over 300 cellulose films in our possession we are looking to preserve and digitize our collection before it starts to degrade and disintegrate. To accomplish this we have started a crowdfunding page to help raise $3,500 to build our own Film Scanner based off an open source model known as the Kinograph. The money raised will help buy supplies, a new camera made for continuous shooting, and other materials & accessories needed to complete the project. After the films have been digitized they will be published on the internet to allow free public use. By donating to this project you will also receive a gift on behalf of the library depending on how much money is donated. Check out our IndieGoGo page for more details.
