This October, the North Olympic Library System offers a free instructional series about how to better capture, preserve and share photographs and memories.
The “Documenting Your History” workshop series teaches how to become a better photographer and how to safely preserve treasured family photographs for generations to come. Workshops start at 6 p.m. every Wednesday in October and take place in the Raymond Carver Room of the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.
Attend one or all four — each workshop introduces various creative and technical practices to help become a better photographer and family historian.
