The Save Your Photos Alliance is hosting its first “Save Your Photos Day” this Saturday.
The event offers free scanning and preservation tips to help worldwide communities protect pictures before disaster strikes.
Every year, according to a release from Kodak Alaris, there are more than 550 natural disasters throughout the world, including fires, floods, tornadoes and other catastrophes in which photos are considered among the most valuable possessions lost.
Rochester will host an event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County, 115 South Ave. The Kodak Picture Saver System PS50 will be onsite with a representative from Kokak Alaris scanning patron’s photos which will be saved on a CD or thumb drive.
All Save Your Photos Day events are listed on the Save Your Photos Alliance website at www.saveyourphotos.org.
