Preserving your family history:
The Frances Bibbins Latimer Collection

During Mrs. Latimer’s lifetime, she collected books, bibles, obituaries, newspaper articles, pictures, court documents and much more documenting the rich history of the Eastern Shore. These materials have been donated to the Eastern Shore Public Library and the collection is being categorized and digitized for full public access.

Come and learn how to start your own collection to tell your family’s story. The history in your home is more than you can imagine.
