Help Preserve Safety Harbor History

The Safety Harbor Public Library is seeking historical photos of our City for digital preservation. We are looking for photos with historical significance, specifically the downtown area including buildings, homes, businesses, and individuals noteworthy to Safety Harbor history prior to 1985. For a full list of sought after topics, please see below.

We will scan and digitize your historical Safety Harbor photographs and provide you with high quality digital images. Selected photos will be added to our digital history collection.

A signed waiver form (PDF) is required to be submitted along with the photos. This form can be downloaded, typed into, and printed using Adobe Reader. All photos will be returned to the owner, along with a digitized image. We do not accept personal photos without historic significance or digitize personal collections.

Photos can be dropped off at the library or mailed to:
Safety Harbor Public Library – Attn: Local History
101 2nd St N
Safety Harbor, FL 34695

For more information, please contact us by email at or call 727-724-1525 x4112.
