“Save Your Stuff and Pass It On!” is my favorite theme song, and the motto for Preservation Week 2019, an annual event sponsored by the American Library Association. I am honored to celebrate Preservation Week 2019 with Honorary Chair Kenyatta D. Berry, and invite you to join ALA and ALCTS (Association for Library Collections & Technical Services) for the free webinar series this week April 21-27, 2019.

I will present “Caring for Family Keepsakes” on Thursday, 25 April 2019 at 2pm (Eastern) | 1pm (Central) | 12pm (Mountain) | 11am (Pacific). Register here.
Preservation programs are also offered throughout the country to educate and encourage anyone working with cultural collections of all kinds. Libraries and archives are often underfunded and understaffed for collections care, underscoring the important role played by the family archivist in preserving personal and family collections. Learn more about safely preserving your family keepsakes at these free online webinars.
