Centreville Treasures Transcribe-a-Thon

April 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Can you read cursive? How about handwriting from the 19th Century? Ellanor C. Lawrence Park has a rich archive of letters and records from the Machen family and is working with Centreville Regional Library for this citizen history event. You can help us transcribe these documents into digital format so our local hidden treasures can be shared and enjoyed by all. Use the Library’s laptops or bring your own Word enabled device. We'll provide scans of original documents and guidance on how to read them. Adults and high school students welcome. Community service hours available. The event will be held at Centreville Regional Library, located at 14200 St. Germain Drive.
