Share your local history with a photograph! The Bixby Library is asking area residents to share their personal historic photographs that tell an interesting story about our community. It could be a photograph of yourself or a relative, a family farm, or historic business. The library is seeking photographs dated 1970 or older, taken in Addison, Ferrisburgh, Panton, Vergennes or Waltham. The online showcase of photographs will be held Thursday Dec. 9, 6-7 p.m.. The Bixby will curate the photographs into a slideshow and when your photograph comes up, you will be able to share your history.
