Can you help keep East Lancashire in the Picture?

Would you like to learn new skills and find out about your local heritage?

Keeping East Lancashire in the Picture is a new two-year Lancashire Archives and Local History project that will make the wonderful collections of historic photographs in East Lancashire Libraries more accessible.

Volunteers are needed to digitise old photographs so that people can enjoy them online, and at exhibitions and events. Help is also needed researching the images. Could you help identify people, places, and events?

Volunteer sessions are held at various times and locations:

Accrington Library: Monday & Tuesday 9.30am-12.30pm / 1pm-4pm.

Burnley Library: Thursday & Friday 9.30am-12.30pm / 1pm-4pm.

Colne Library: Tuesday & Friday 9.30am-12.30pm / 1pm-4pm.

Nelson Library: Monday 9.30am-12.30pm / 1pm-4pm. Wednesday 1pm-4pm / 4pm-7pm.
