For the past several years, the archives of the Orleans Parish School Board has been the library’s most frequently consulted collection. During the first six months of 2010, it accounted for more than one-third of the requests for some 400 collections. The library’s wish list includes:
Memorabilia from local public schools—give us your yearbooks, your class photo-graphs, your spelling certificates, your programs from school concerts and plays!
Files, reports, or other records of research value held by former teachers, administrators, and members of the School Board
Funds to support digitizing the School Board’s minute books and extensive collection of historical photographs
