So many questions:
- How do I store my grandfather’s letters home from the front?
- What should I do to preserve my family’s fading color snapshots?
- How can I preserve my child’s baby quilt made by her great-grandmother?
Everyone has something they cherish and want to save, and almost everyone needs advice on how to do it properly.
Ask your preservation question by sending it in to preservation specialist Donia Conn, who may answer it in her advice column, “Dear Donia.” What “Dear Abby” was to personal relationships, “Dear Donia” will be for preservation conundrums.
Dear Donia’s Monthly Raffle
All questions will be given an entry number and once each month, our staff will use a random-number generator to select one entry number to determine the winner of a preservation kit from Hollinger Metal Edge for that month.
The kit contains many different items to get you started:
- acid-free, lignin-free, buffered box, folders, envelopes, and paper that help protect paper and photographic items.
- Mylar envelopes help protect items that should not get too much handling
- Pigma Pen is a great way to label folders and envelopes, as well as the back of photographs (but only at the edges.)
- white cotton gloves are perfect for handling photographs, negatives, medals, or silver.
Declaration for the Right to Libraries
In the spirit of the United States Declaration of Independence and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we believe that libraries are essential to a democratic society.
Every day, in countless communities across our nation and the world, millions of children, students and adults use libraries to learn, grow and achieve their dreams.
In addition to a vast array of books, computers and other resources, library users benefit from the expert teaching and guidance of librarians and library staff to help expand their minds and open new worlds.
We declare and affirm our right to quality libraries -public, school, academic, and special – and urge you to show your support by signing your name to this Declaration for the Right to Libraries.
