(March 16) – The Kokomo-Howard County Public Library was the focus of the inaugural “Past and Present: Genealogy and Local History” column in the March 11, 2020 issue of the Kokomo Perspective.

The pursuit of the past typically starts in the present, most often at KHCPL. In addition to sharing recent facts and figures, the column featured a description of several of the library’s well-organized and portable Experience Kits, which are available for borrowing by the public. 

The Genealogy and Local History department’s Experience Kit is the Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner. This robust handheld device is ideal for documents, photographs, and even fragile items that can be difficult to scan with other systems. So even in the traditional realm of genealogy, with dusty documents and deteriorating records, there now are digital tools to help preserve our past.
