Local History Photos of the Week April 26, 2019

Hi everyone, here are the Local History Photos of the Week!

(Click on the photos for a larger view!)

I’m running out of week here!

There is a great deal going on in Library Land this week, cummulating with the library’s participation in the Twin Tiers Mini Maker Faire being held at Corning Community College this Saturday, April 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

For more information visit the Twin Tiers Mini Maker Faire site: https://twintiers.makerfaire.com

And just FYI, here is a map showing where all the creators are at the Maker Fair – come visit the library’s creation team, we’ll be in the gym offering several cool make-it-and-take-it-with-you projects.

And here are of several photos taken during and just after the Flood of ’72.






Have a great weekend!

P.S. The library is closed this Saturday for spring cleaning!

We’ll re-open at our usual time of 9:00 a.m. on Monday, April 29.


Library Local History/Creation Station Resources:

At the library you can scan your photos and slides to create digital family albums and slideshows; and even use one of the Circut machines, and other Creation Station equipment, to help you create a special paper family history album.

Also of note, we have the local paper, at times called the Corning Leader, Corning Journal or Corning Daily Journal, on microfilm from 1840 to the present — so you can visit the library and research local history and your family tree if you wish!


And if you find any old photos or postcards of the Corning area that you don’t know what to do with – you can always donate them to the library!
