At this kick-off event for a new, innovative Library service, local historian and freelance columnist Grace Shackman discussed what you can learn from pictures past and present with an illustrated lecture of key moments in Ann Arbor history. AADL staff members then introduced and explain the new Library service, pictureAnnArbor.

As part of this project, the Library gathers pictures from the community to capture the images and create a digital collection of photos, that are easily web searchable, which reflect everyday life in the Ann Arbor community.

YOUR photos could be an important part of this project!!!

PictureAnnArbor is designed to:

-Increase awareness of the richness of our community's life

-Create a public resource for research and enjoyment

-Facilitate public awareness to unpublished materials

-Capture existing images in digital form
