The Turin Library is looking for old photos of the area to possibly put in our annual calendar. We have used a large percentage of the ones we already have, and are hoping to gain some more for our database. If anyone has some neat old photos they would like to share, they can scan them and email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or bring them to the library and we will scan them on the spot and return them to you right then. Dig in those drawers, and show us what you’ve got!
