Making the Most of your Memories: Photo Books

More than 35 people joined in our Seniors Week Workshop on How to create a photo book supported by Officeworks yesterday. Pictured is Local Studies Librarian Peter Douglass with Sophie and Kristy from Officeworks. The first part of the workshop was led by Peter who went through easy steps to put together your own life story, family story or a fictional story.
He talked about the importance of planning, using timelines and research and showed a wonderful example of a photo book used for family history. The second part of the seminar featured Sophie and Kristy who explained how the Officeworks photo book program works, costs, pages and what can be created using documents, images and text. They can also help with creating document PDFs to use in the photo book. Thank you for eveyone who came along and we hope you enjoy creating your own photo book.
