Before there was digital..

Before there was digital..

When the North Branch started, we were printing postcards and mailing letters to let our volunteers know about meetings and such (really!). Communication is, of course, very different nowadays, and we sure wouldn’t want to go back to the ‘good old days’. But there’s something mellow about revisiting old newsletters, printed in the early decades, that’s lost in the ephemeral world of email and twitter.

What to do with those piles of leftover newsletters and journals? Two of our industrious volunteers decided to scan them all, creating a digital library of some of those early works. Take a look at a couple and let us know if you enjoyed them. We’ll post more in the future.

Many thanks to our curators, Gayle and Lisa!
