Join in celebrating the life and work of John Martin Smith. In 2013, Eckhart Public Library received a federal grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to digitize John Martin Smith's collection of DeKalb County and Auburn Post Card Company postcards. The genealogy center will be displaying the tools of digitization and showcasing selections from the thousands of postcards. Guests will have the chance to see how digitization is done and ask questions about the process, the equipment, and how they might digitize their own personal mementos. Refreshments will be served.
