VISIT NJDH ON RUTGERS DAY, APRIL 30

On Rutgers Day, April 30, 2011 from 10am-4pm , bring up to 5 photographs of your family, house, community or local events to the 4th floor, Alexander Library, 169 College Avenue  for inclusion in  MyJerseyRoots (see Spotlight at left), a digital collection offering  New Jersey citizens an opportunity to document the everyday life of our cities, small towns and rural communities from past to present. The first 25 participants will take home a free USB flash drive with their digital images, and as part of the formal launch of MyJerseyRoots, members of the Libraries staff will select the three most striking photos brought in on Rutgers Day. The owners of these photos will each receive a free framed print of their image.  Visit the Rutgers Day website to find out more about this and other events.
