We are thrilled to give our members and neighbors the opportunity to submit historic photos for the upcoming Greater Boulder Memories: The Early Years book project.

This new hardcover coffee-table book presented by The Daily Camera will feature a glimpse of the Greater Boulder area from the early years to 1939 through stunning historic photos. It will include photos from community members, plus photos carefully selected from the Museum of Boulder’s collection, as well as from the following partner organizations: Carnegie Library for Local History, Erie Historical Society, Lafayette Miners Museum, and Denver Public Library.

If you have photographs that meet the criteria below, please bring them to our scanning session on June 2nd.
