Library Workshop to revive old memories

Date published: 5 June 2018

Townsville residents can get tech savvy and learn how to preserve their precious memories by converting them into digital at the City Library’s Digitise Preserve and Share workshops.

The free one-on-one workshops will run on Tuesdays throughout June from 2pm – 4pm and will teach locals how to create digital versions of documents, photographs, negatives, slides and more.

Community and Cultural Development Committee Chair Councillor Colleen Doyle said the workshops taught people of all ages how to convert important documents or precious memories into digital formats.

“These Digitise Preserve and Share workshops create an opportunity for people of any age to learn skills that will keep them up to date with technology,” Cr Doyle said.

“These workshops are extremely valuable so people can learn to make a hard copy memory like a photo or letter last even longer in digital form.”

Councillor Doyle said the workshops helped residents become more tech-savvy for free.

“We encourage anyone that wants to learn these valuable skills to book in to the City Library workshops – our library staff are here to help and do a fantastic job,” Cr Doyle said.
