Preservation Week at the South San Francisco Public Library

Preservation Week

April 24-30, 2016 is Preservation Week.  Celebrate with us by learning tips and techniques for repairing your books or preserving your personal library or photo archive.

What is Preservation Week?

The American Library Association created Preservation Week to draw attention to the need to preserve our important collections of records and other documents, photographs, books and other valuable artifacts.

What’s in it for me?

Here at the library, we’re committed to providing information and education to help you preserve your precious documents so they’ll be around for generations to come. To support this commitment, we are hosting a program to help you with these efforts.

Preservation Week: Photograph Preservation

Saturday, April 30th, at 11:00 a.m.

In this age of digital everything, there’s nothing quite like a photograph. If you have a collection of treasured family photos, you no doubt want to keep them for as long as possible so they can be enjoyed by future generations. Join us for a special workshop on photograph preservation with art conservator Gawain Weaver, who will teach you how to properly save and store your photos so they’ll be around for years to come.
