This Community Engagement Spotlight focuses on the Farmington Scrapbook: A Walk Down Memory Lane Anthology created by Travis Feder of the Farmington Libraries. After his experience building the Anthology Travis notes the Creator tool's incredible ability to connect the library and community with their shared past:
“Creator was a really helpful tool when it came to putting together our Farmington Scrapbook: A Walk Down Memory Lane Anthology. The project started with the library’s desire to share its photo collection with the public. All of our photos had already been digitized, but Creator allowed us to take those digital files, curate them, and share over 100 of them with our patrons.
One of the things I found rewarding as a librarian using Creator was delving into the history behind some of our photographs. Locating the information necessary to upload the photos gave me an opportunity to learn a bit more about Farmington, and the whole project made me feel a bit closer to the town in which I work.”
