Program Announcement -- Identifying and Preserving Your Family Documents

On Saturday, January 27, at 2:00 p.m. in the Library Program Room we will have a "hands-on" presentation on identifying and preserving your historical documents. Using examples from the Library's archival collections, we will show you how to identify your documents - what they are, what they are made of, and how old they might be - and offer tips on how to care for these items, so you can preserve your history for future generations. The program will include a brief overview of formats and preservation techniques, with tips on care for specific items, and where to go for supplies and more information.

You are welcome to bring in samples of your own family documents to discuss particular issues you might have with their care and handling. (Because of time constraints, we cannot guarantee detailed discussion of all items; please limit your materials to one or two items.)

To register for the program, call 419-625-3834 and press 0 to speak with a switchboard operator (9-5, Monday-Friday) or press Option 6 to leave a message.
