Historical Photographs

The Local History department is involved with a digital picture project with Wood County District Public Library. If anyone has unique photos of early citizens, buildings that don't exist anymore, or other interesting photos of fires, floods, natural disasters from the entire school district, we would like to scan them for use and display on the internet. The photos would be returned to the owner. Please contact Laura King for more information.

Pemberville Photograph Archive

Browse our Photograph Archive! The Pemberville Public Library in cooperation with the Pemberville-Freedom Area Historical Society started a  project where images form the Dale M. Bruning Local and Family History Room and other sources have been digitized and made available to the public. The funding for this project came from an LSTA (Library and Services Technology Act) and is administered by the NORWELD regional library system.
