DeKALB– The DeKalb Public Library is offering free family portraits with a professional photographer. Patrons are offered 15 minute time slots, and will get three to five quality family photos taken. This event will be held on Sunday between 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Photographer Jesus Galindo will be taking photos in both the library’s main lobby and in the library’s courtyard. The pictures will be delivered to patrons via email within the following days of the event. Patrons will be able to download and use them in whatever fashion they please. Neither the photographer nor the library will be responsible for printing the photos, though the library welcomes patrons to use the library to do the printing themselves. 

If there is heavy rain during your 15-minute slots, only indoor photos will be allowed. 

This will be a free program for families of two or more. To register for the 15-minute time slot, contact Samantha Hathaway at [email protected] or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 1701.
