Historic Photography Show

Update from Shirley:

The status of our annual historic photography show, “Faces of Ligonier Valley: Veterans of the Korean War Era”, is at this time unknown. Once the library reopens and we have time to look at our schedule, we will decide on whether the show can be held later in 2020 or if it will need to be postponed until Spring 2021. As soon as the decision is made, we will post it here and on our Facebook page. Thank you for understanding! Please stay safe and healthy!

Faces of Ligonier Valley : Veterans of the Korean War Era

May 12 – July 14, 2020

The Pennsylvania Room is looking for memorabilia for the 19th Annual Historic Photography Show. If you wish to lend items for the show, please contact Shirley Iscrupe at 724-238-6451 or lvlparoom@ligonierlibrary.org (please include Historic Photography Show 2020 in the subject).

The Show’s History and Mission

Binders from each of the Historic Photography Shows are available in the Pennsylvania Room featuring photos and documents. Stop by during normal Pennsylvania Room hours to take a look. For more information about this and other aspects of the Pennsylvania Room call the Ligonier Valley Library at 724-238-6451 and ask to speak to Shirley Iscrupe or email her at lvlparoom@ligonierlibrary.org.

The mission of the Historic Photography Show (as well as the smaller shows held throughout the year) is to present a facet of Ligonier Valley history that is interesting, educational and may have been overlooked in the past. In addition, the photographs and documents copied become a permanent part of the Pennsylvania Room collection. This is an ideal manner of preserving our history and provides patrons with a strong base from which to conduct research.

The Historic Photography Show is an exhibit put on by the Ligonier Valley Library’s Pennsylvania Room staff and volunteers. If you would like to be a volunteer, please stop by or contact the library at 724-238-6451 or lvlparoom@ligonierlibrary.org.
