Last fall some members of our Executive were provided an early tour of the Beaverbrook Library’s new Digitization Lab and were most impressed . The Kanata Library has the first such capability in the city of Ottawa.
The facility is now open for business and the library will be scheduling a special group tour for camera club members in the near future.
You may sign up for one of their monthly tours, by registering here.
In the meantime, you are welcome to start using the equipment in the lab by booking on their website.
At the Camera Club’s October 5th meeting Gillian Johnston introduced us to the Beaverbrook Library Digital Lab and said she’d follow up with an announcement when the lab was available for bookings.
Here’s her recent announcement:
I’m writing to let you know the Digital Lab at the Beaverbrook branch of the Ottawa Public Library is now open for booking. We mentioned this room during our last visit, or, you joined us for a tour. The room focuses on preserving and/or converting your memories.
We have more information on our website, including details about the equipment and bookings.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at this email.
You can see pictures of some of the gear available at the lab here.
A note of thanks to the following Kanata Seniors Centre Camera Club members for submitting some great photos for our October 2018 Library Showcase: Anne Walsh, Ian Buchanan, Qing Mao, and Georgia Dale Crichton.
I received a very nice email from the Library saying how beautiful they found the display.
This a great way to promote the club. Also it allows our members to see their photos out there for public viewing.
The display is at the inside entrance to the Beaverbrook Library in the Mlacak Centre and will be on view until October 15th.
The Camera Club will be providing a new display requiring about 5 photos (8 by 10 framed ) in October and June of each year .
The display will be available for viewing for a two week period each time. We encourage everyone to consider submitting for the June display . We’ll ensure that different members have a chance to display each time.
Of course , there is a on-going need for photos for display throughout the KSC and photos can be submitted to Sue Carey for that purpose.
Thanks to everyone for your recent library showcase submissions ,
Thanks to Ed Lascelle for organizing, to Anne Jones for helping with the setup and the props (lovely glass pedestals), for Sue Carey for loaning the great old cameras, and to all who contributed images. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough space to use them all.
The display will be there until Monday June 11th.
The club has been invited to provide a display for the fall (early Oct for 2 weeks).
The library is very pleased with the display . This is great exposure for the club..
