Digital Watauga Project Committee
Watauga County Public Library, Community Room
WCHS Home Movie Day,
with Skip Elsheimer, AV Geeks
Watauga County Public Library, August 3, 2017, 4:30-7:00pm
Have any old home movies just lying around in the attic, basement, or garage? Think they might contain footage showing life in Boone, Blowing Rock, or Watauga County? Bring them on down to the WCHS Home Movie Day, and we'll run them through the projector to see what you've got. In addition, WCHS will show footage from its own collections, including the 1950 Appalachian Theatre fire and the 1949 Watauga County Centennial Parade.
WCHS Annual Meeting
Watauga County Public Library,
September 6, 2017, 5:00-7:00pm
Join us for our annual meeting, which is a lot more exciting than you might think. This year we will we update our members on the Digital Watauga Project, preview our community programming for the year, elect a new secretary, and--the big draw--offer a SNEAK PEEK of a massive new collection of images. If you thought the Palmer Blair Collection was a game changer, you don't want to miss this one.
Meeting begins promptly at 5:30pm. Light refreshments provided. New members and the innately curious are welcome!
