National Preservation Week

Mark your calendars!

The first national collections Preservation Week, themed "Pass it On!" takes place May 9-15. Preservation Week will inspire actions to preserve personal, family and community collections of all kinds, as well as library, museum and archive collections. It will raise awareness of the role libraries and other cultural institutions play in providing ongoing preservation information.

The Historical Center is celebrating Preservation Week with an exhibit, "Practical Preservation", that will suggest simple steps to help you make sure your treasures and memories last a lifetime and are passed on to future generations.

Pam Carlisle, Local History and Outreach Specialist at the Historical Center, will be presenting a FREE workshop, Practical Preservation - Making Family Memories Last, at 5:30 on Tuesday, May 11 at the Bossier Central Library meeting room at 2206 Beckett Street in Bossier City. Registration is not required.

For questions, call us at (318)746-7717 or email pcarter@state.lib.la.us

You are invited to bring documents, photographs, and objects to the Historical Center to receive tips on storage and handling. Please consider allowing us to scan any Bossier-related photographs and documents so that we may have copies for our collection. With your help, we can pass Bossier Parish history on!
