Our latest Distributed Proofreaders project is a novel of high school life that was published in Boston in 1896: Boys of the Central, by Ida Treadwell Thurston. This book, mostly forgotten for more than a century, will soon be much more accessible, and you can help make it happen. With the help of a team of volunteers, the page images from our Digital Library will be turned into a Project Gutenberg eBook through a simple web-based process. Anyone can join in and help; it’s simply a matter of reading our Proofreading the Digital Library post and then visiting the project page to begin work. Stay tuned; in a few months, a complete, corrected text will be freely available for anyone to read. At that point, we’ll probably have a bit more to say about the contents of the book!
