Practical Preservation exhibit

We have a new exhibit in the History Center - "Practical Preservation" - that has recommendations on the best ways to preserve your own family heirlooms.  If you're wondering what to do with those old photo albums or a handmade quilt, we have plenty of information for you. We even have handy tip cards that will help you "Save Your Stuff!"

So if you have books, films, textiles, photographs, documents, audio, slides, furniture, paintings, etc. that you would like to save for future generations, be sure to stop in.  We even have some suggestions for what to do with your digital collections!

This exhibit will coincide with Preservation Week, April 21-27, a time when libraries nationwide present activities, events, and resources that highlight what we can do, individually and together, to preserve our personal and shared collections.  We encourage Bossier Parish residents to bring in items that they would like to preserve.  We would especially like patrons to bring in photos, papers, etc., regarding Bossier Parish history so that we can make copies to add to our collection! With your help, we can pass Bossier history on!
