During the ACD Festival Festivities, come see some of the items being digitized by the Eckhart Public Library from the John Martin Smith Collection. Smith, who helped found the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, was a prolific collector, and his collection includes items of local, state, and national importance, including many items relating to Auburnís automotive history. The Smith family has generously loaned the collection to the library to be scanned and digitally shared. Stop in and see some of the items that are being digitized as part of this project, and talk to library staff members who are working on the project.

There will be a short program at noon.
