Remember when your family photos accumulated in boxes that you always intended to get organized? Chances are these days your photos are accumulating in your digital camera or your phone – different technologies, same results.
On Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 4 p.m., come to the Community Room at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library and learn to Save Your Photos. Melode Hall will discuss ways to create a back-up plan for your treasured photos and videos.
The free presentation will discuss how to be proactive and avoid heartbreaking losses, the importance of cloud storage, how to manage mobile phone photos, and steps to create a photo plan.
She will also discuss how to preserve outdated media such as videotapes, slides, film reels, and other items, scanning services for photos and albums, and how to protect your digital assets so they can be passed on to future generations.

A new lecture series of Inland Northwest Milestones at the library will be based on material researched for Robert Singletary’s upcoming book, “Coeur d’Alene: Beautiful and Progressive, 1878-1990.”
The first program in the series will Sept. 27, at 7 p.m., and will examine Fort Sherman and the Beginning of Coeur d’Alene.
Singletary, regional historian and Program and Marketing Director for the Museum of North Idaho, said the description of the Lake City as “beautiful and progressive” was first used in a booklet written in the 1920s by George Weeks, former president of the local Chamber of Commerce.
“Even as a village of tents and log cabins, the emerging town next to Fort Coeur d’Alene was noted for its beautiful location,” Singletary said. “It was also known for its ability to adapt and grow, even in difficult times.”
The book and lecture series will give the reader and audience an overview of Coeur d’Alene’s major economic, political, social/cultural developments and some of the people that that made it happen, he said.  The time period covered will be from the town’s very beginning, with the founding of Fort Sherman up to 1990.
Most of the series presentations will be on the fourth Thursday of the month. The October program has been scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 7, and a another program will follow on Nov. 27, to avoid the Thanksgiving holiday. There will not be a December program.
The subjects for the rest of the programs will be:
► Nov. 7: The Timber Boom, then World War I.
► Nov. 29: The Dynamic Twenties.
► Jan. 24: The ’30s in Coeur d’Alene.
► Feb. 28: Farragut’s Influence on Coeur d’Alene.
► March  28: Coeur d’Alene After the War and into the ’50s.
► April 25: Coeur d’Alene in the ’60s and ’70s.
► May 23: The Turbulent, but Progressive ’80s.
