- Do you know how to halt the decay of brittle newspaper clippings that are important to your family history?
- Do you know to best preserve your important family keepsakes for the next generation?
- Do you know how to repair the damage caused by time to objects of sentimental value?
Preservation Week will be a time to learn about preserving your own collectibles, photos, family records and other valuable materials, and how your library can help. The goal is to connect library users with preservation tools, promote the importance of preservation, and enhance knowledge of preservation issues among the general public.
See http://www.ala.org/preservationweek for events, resources and more information.
