In Spring 2020, the Special Collections Department will begin a new community digitization project, and we need your help!

The project, “Huntsville in Retrospect,” focuses on scanning and photographing family records and other items of historical value. However, instead of you coming to us, we are going to you. We plan to schedule six locations around Madison County – at community centers, churches, libraries, and anywhere else we can find – where you can bring in personal family records for us to digitally copy for the archive. The best part? You get to keep your family records!

The first scanning day will be held at the Historic Huntsville Depot on March 3 and 4, 2020.

New year means new book picks! We are really excited about the first pick of the year- American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins.

Place a hold.

Read reviews on Goodreads.

 

Already being hailed as "a Grapes of Wrath for our times" and "a new American classic," American Dirt is a rare exploration into the inner hearts of people willing to sacrifice everything for a glimmer of hope.
