The Pella Public Library will develop a digitization and crowdsourcing project involving historical collections from the library and the Pella Historical Society and Museums. The project will establish a digitization hub in the library, digitize and create metadata for historical materials from the library and the historical society, and make these materials available online. Building on the interest in and commitment to the community's interest in local history and shared Dutch heritage, public programs will engage volunteers to help improve metadata, transcribe documents, translate documents from Dutch to English, and provide their own historical documents to digitize.
