Program Announcement: Home Movie Day

Join us in the Library Program Room on Saturday, October 18, at 2:00 p.m. for this celebration of amateur film and filmmaking. Home Movie Day was started in 2002 by a group of film archivists concerned about preserving the home movies recorded on film during the 20th Century. The event helps to promote awareness and enjoyment of these movies, with the goal of preserving these films for future generations.

Home Movie Day at Sandusky Library will begin on the morning of Saturday, October 18. Between 9:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, you can bring your home movies to the Library Program Room where staff and experienced volunteers will examine the films to ensure they are in condition for viewing (or, if you wish, you can drop your film off before October 18 to the Archives Librarian). You can stay to learn more about preserving your films or you can return later for an afternoon of movie viewing. At 2:00 p.m. in the Library Program Room, we will gather to view the home movies brought in by members of the community and experience the joy of shared memories preserved on film! You'll learn about the importance of film preservation and how to care for your movies so that you can share these films for years to come. Registration is requested, but not required. For further information, contact Ron Davidson, Archives Librarian, at 419-625-3834.
