Attention, Middletown-area time travelers!
Immerse yourselves in 1,300 “new” historic photos of the city and surrounding area beginning Tuesday, September 3, on MidPointe Library’s popular “Digital Archives”!
That’s when The City of Middletown Slides Collection, a history of “buildings, places, people, and events” will be going live, announced Adam Wanter, MidPointe’s Digital and Special Collections Archivist.
The new collection is derived from the City of Middletown Collection made available to the library by Middletown’s Planning & Zoning Department, he said.
Wanter stressed that the “Slides” collection should not be confused with the “City of Middletown Photos Collection” that currently appears on the Digital Archives.
“The ‘Photos’ grouping will remain online,” he confirmed. “Both pull from the same parent collection; however, the ‘Slides’ are items that haven’t appeared yet.”
