Residents of Brownsville and the surrounding area are invited to participate in a Brownsville History Harvest at the Brownsville Public Library Main Branch at 2600 Central Boulevard on Saturday, September 27, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, and all ages are encouraged to attend. Families may bring historic photos, letters, diaries, and other documents. Staff and volunteers from the sponsoring organizations will scan paper items onsite and immediately return the owner’s original materials, along with a free digital copy. Attendees can also bring Texas-related films and videos to be digitized by the Texas Archive of the Moving Image. The History Harvest will create a community collection from the area's families to document their local, regional, and national heritage.
