When is the last time you looked at your high school yearbook? Chances are it's buried in a box somewhere in your attic.

The Baton Rouge Library wants to share those yearbooks with the world. Archivists are collecting yearbooks from East Baton Rouge Schools past and present. They are in the process of digitizing the old annuals and posting them on the web for alumni both young and old to enjoy.

"The long part is doing the research. We like to attach the history of the school, or maybe if there was a significant event during the year, we add that to the description," said archivist Melissa Eastin.

The collection currently has more than 700 yearbooks from 70 different schools. If you would like to donate a yearbook or a collection of them, call the library at (225) 231-3752.
