Clifton Park digitizes the past

Scherer said he probably has over 1,000 historical photos in the collection and many historical documents that go back as far as 1680 which will also be added to the Web site. The first 200 photos digitized were chiefly from Sherer's book, "Images of America," because he had most of the background information compiled already.

Sherer keeps office hours at the library and will help residents locate and copy historical items the first and third Tuesdays of the month, from 7 to 9 p.m., or by appointment. He also accepts historical photos from residents, either for donation or digitization.

The library is also seeking a grant from the New York State Archives to categorize the historical collection so that it is easier to navigate.""
