To send us materials:

If you are sending us materials for inclusion in the Towanda area history collection, from our experiences with this work, it would be best if you would:

    Identify the people, location and time period/date of any photographs you have;

    when writing stories about memories, traditions, genealogy, save the documents 
     to a disk and send us the file;

    describe your artifacts as completely as possible (used for what, when, how,
     where, by whom...); and

    let us know whether you prefer to loan, or are willing to donate, the item to the
    Historical Society;

We have a standard Description Form that you can use in preparing the materials for the collection, and a Permission-to-Use form that needs to be completed and signed for us to keep on file.  Click on the hyperlinks to see these forms.

Veterans:  Become part of our planned archive of veteran's stories by adding yourself to our contact list using this Veteran's Information Form through email or by taking it to the Towanda District Library.  Click HERE for more information.
