The Rosetown Centennial Library Archives have been collecting memorability for the last 37 years and recent funding from the town will help continue Rosetown's chronicles.
The Town of Rosetown has committed to provide a $500.00 grant every year to the Library Archives.
Library Archive Employee, Sharon Clark, who is also a self titled archivist says that covers the membership to the Saskatchewan Council of Archives, as well will help cover the expense of the Rosetown Eagle microfilm. She says the grant will allow the Library Archives to pay their own expenses.
The archive was founded by Frank Glass in 1973 with his photographs and since then growth and expansion from everything from photograph collection, history books, to local family history and organization, history has been donated and collected for the purpose of preserving Rosetown's history.
Clark says summer time is especially busy with curious people researching family history. She says people from as far away as South Africa have called to inquire of families pasts and she enjoys helping people find their roots.
Clark encourages people to give old pictures, items and memorabilia to the archives. She says its important to keep this history and keep collecting or it will be lost. She says they are looking for history books, donations and always appreciate old photos.
The archive is open during regular library hours and everyone is invited to view the past. Clark says she hopes visitors to the Rosetown Centennial Library Archives can reconnect with their backgrounds.
