Almond-Bancroft yearbooks to be uploaded
By Taylor Hale
ALMOND-BANCROFT — Portage County Public Library staff are digitizing Almond-Bancroft High School yearbooks to be uploaded to the historic archival site recollectionwisconsin.org.
The yearbooks, ranging 1953-79, will be uploaded online later this fall, and viewable shortly after.
Library director Larry Oathout noted that there is no exact date set yet, but library staff is working hard to have the content online promptly.
“Last year around April we put the Stevens Point yearbooks up and online and they have been incredibly successful,” Oathout said. “We are trying to do it for as many of the county school systems as we can. As of now, we have 86,000 views.”
At the time of writing, the Portage County Public Library collection contains Tattler yearbooks from 1916-76, covering Stevens Point High School, Emerson High School, PJ Jacobs High School, and Stevens Point Area Senior High.
