2015: Focus on Collections
Our major focus for the coming year will be making the remainder of our collection items available online. Over 800 items, with emphasis on school photos, are already online (click here to access Online Collections)
and by the end of 2015 we hope to add another 1800. A grant from Heritage 4Culture will help support this considerable task.
