Three scrapbooks, courtesy of our newest partner, Cleveland County Memorial Library, are now available on DigitalNC. These scrapbooks cover large ranges of time, from 1928 through 1999, and focus on the Bridges family along with the African American community in Shelby, North Carolina.

Included are many different  materials such a labeled family photographs, news clippings, letters, greeting cards, obituaries, funeral program, and event fliers. While many of these materials are specific to the Bridges family in North Carolina, there are also more general articles and news clippings that ran in local and national news outlets.
