It's Preservation Week! This designation for the last week of April raises awareness and provides expertise about collecting and preserving historic documents and objects. The effort recognizes collections held in libraries, archives and museums but is especially directed at collections held in homes or local entities like churches and small businesses. These treasured collections document personal, family and community history and the goal of Preservation Week is to help ensure that they are available for posterity.
