The Brainerd Public Library is starting a new program to preserve the Brainerd lakes area's history by scanning photographs of cityscapes, buildings and community memories of the past. The library is interested in scanning pictures of what the Highway 371 corridor looked like before Baxter sprung to life. The goal is to collect images that may have not been seen before which could lead to insights to the history of lakes area and to help future researchers.

Examples of items the library could scan include recent and historical photographs and documents, important buildings, prominent community members, city scenes, the Highway 371 corridor changes and local postcards.

If people are interested in sharing their items they can email the library at crowwinghistoricalphotos1-3 p.m. March 18; 10 a.m.-noon March 24; and 5-7 p.m. March 31.

This free Legacy Program is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota's art and cultural heritage.
