Donated yearbooks will be digitized and put online for public viewing

The public library in Springfield, Massachusetts has put out a last call to the community for help with a project to preserve local history.

Hundreds of people responded earlier this year when the Springfield City Library asked for donations of yearbooks from Springfield high schools to create a digital collection.

With digitization of the yearbooks scheduled to start next month, there are several volumes still missing.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Elizabeth McKinstry, a reference librarian at the Springfield City Library.
