Need Community Service Hours? Come to the Library on 9/27 to Participate in the Kickoff Transcribe-a-thon for 2023-2024

On Wednesday, Sep. 27th from 3:30 to 5 p.m., the MW Library will host its first Transcribe-a-thon for this school year, an opportunity to decode historic documents into searchable digital versions for the benefit of historians, scholars, genealogists, and other researchers. Ms. Sonya Coleman from the Library of Virginia will be here to share exciting project updates. Enjoy free sweet treats and get Library of Virginia bling this annual kickoff event. Once you participate in-person, you’ll have the option to continue earning community service hours (up to a max of 35 hours) by transcribing historic documents online from anywhere (as long as you provide the required documentation). Interested? Sign in to your GSGIS Google account & then sign up for this year’s team!
