As part of the project­, Adair County­ Public­ Library­ has posted­ a history of the old Porter­ School with many pictures and memorabilia from the historic school.

According to Adair System Administrator Sharon­ Piper, the physical Porter­ School collections were practically­ inaccessible­ by the public because of preservation issues, and most of the public was not aware that the collections even existed.

With the help of the MOREnet connection­ and funding from the State Library for the digitization project, many Missouri libraries­ are able to share collections­ like Adair’s with the world.
