Big Success Today

Saturday, March 09, 2013

I don't know how many families came into the library today and claimed photos but I do know we gave back 783 photos which makes the total returned to 15, 500 plus..........11

Praising God for His faithfulness while we do this.

One lady got back 158 photos of her wedding. She said these were the only photos from her wedding. They all were in excellent condition and ready to right into an album.

We were quite busy but if was a nice busy. We were to open at 1 PM....there were 3 families there at 10 minutes to came right up to 3:30......we closed down at 4.

    The photos are ones that people have found since the 2011 Joplin tornado. Our church collects them, cleans them, and posts them for people to claim. Even after all this time we are still getting found pictures sent to us. After they are processed, we hold photo sessions so people can come claim their pictures. Most of these sessions are held once a month at the Joplin library. We will be doing this until November when all the pictures will be stored at the Joplin Museum. We have over 35,000 pictures of which around 15,500 have been returned to the rightful people.

    Where do the photos come from? I am happy that so many got pictures. Pictures link us to our past and each tells a story.
