Your library is gearing up for a series of workshops for adults designed to teach you ways to help preserve the keepsakes in your life to be able to pass down to others in your family, or simply to extend its longevity. Join us on Friday, August 19 at 10:00AM at your Main Library as librarian Jay Smith will present the first in a series of workshops titled Preservation for Non-Professionals.
Libraries and museums are known for preserving materials including audio recordings, books, photographs, videos, and more. They have been preserved for their historical value and for people everywhere to be able to access whether in person or digitally. Over time, all physical materials will experience damage and there are professionals in our society who work towards preserving those materials.
The average person may not have the time to receive such detailed professional training or have the tools and know-how to be able to start. This series will show that getting started in preserving your own items may be simpler than you think.
Smith will be on hand to provide an overview of preservation topics such as major risk factors, environmental considerations, storage options, emergency preparedness, and more. Learn what simple steps you can take now to help ensure the longevity of those keepsakes in your own household so they can be available for generations to come.
Again, this free workshop at your Main Library, titled Preservation for Non-Professional, will occur on Friday, August 19 at 10:00AM. For more information about this event, contact Jay Smith at 325-676-6025, Also feel free to keep up with all of our events online at www.abilenetx.gov/apl/EventsCal.
