OPPL Photo Collection Part I

Did you know that the Ouachita Parish Public Library’s Genealogy Department has a large historical photo collection? We have almost 2,000 photos in our collection. If you know of a photo pertaining to Ouachita Parish you think would fit into our collection, please stop by and let us copy it! If you don’t want to donate your photo, with your permission, we will scan it and get it right back to you! Over the next several days, I will post our photo index to show you what we have. Each is identified by a number, so if there is one you are interested in, you will need that number! Some are copies, some are original and some are just newspaper clippings.
