Timeline PhotosWe’re pleased to confirm that we will be giving everyone free access to our digitised collections very soon, but it’s taking our amazing digital team a bit of time to make it happen.
They’re facing similar challenges to the rest of the world with regard to connecting to our various technical systems while working from home, and many of them are also juggling childcare duties. Stay tuned for an update soon!
EDIT: To clarify, we’re referring to digitised collections that are available on our website (and usually chargeable) – at this stage, this doesn’t extend to our collections on other sites. ... See MoreSee Less
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has enacted an executive order requiring closure of all non-essential businesses as of 5PM EST, on March 23rd in order to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Maryland.
We, here at the Society, kept our distance and watched as the events unfolded. As predicted, our fast approach to the crisis paid off. Not allowing volunteers and visitors into the building eliminated the possible transfer of the virus.
To the people that work tirelessly behind the scenes, your hard work is greatly appreciated. These are Historic times! I am focused on doing the right thing for all. I will continue to keep you, our staff, volunteers, visitors and employees at the forefront of my decision making through this crisis.
As we gain information and remain in crisis mode, all events are canceled or postponed. Carol Deibel, Events Committee Chair, and I will be working on postponed dates and or cancellation of future events. CarolDeibel@verizon.net
