Event Details

What was it like growing up in the Filipino community in the San Francisco Bay Area? And how do they document and preserve these experiences for future generations? The San Francisco Public Library and SoMA Pilipinas are asking current and former Filipino residents to dust off their family photo albums and share their snapshots with the Library on Saturday, May 13 at the Main Library.

From 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. library staff and community volunteers will scan photographs that emphasize Filipino-American family and community celebrations, political and social organizations, and people at home, work and play. Photographs will be scanned that day and added to the San Francisco History Center’s Photograph Collection at the San Francisco Main Public Library. They will also be added to the department’s digital library for wide accessibility and viewing. The collected images will become an important primary resource for research and use by scholars, students and the general public.

Appointments to participate in Kodakan Photo Day are strongly recommended and can be made by contacting Joelene Pangilinan at joelene@bayanihancc.org or online at www.sfpl.org/kodakanphotoday
