Your family memories and treasures should last a lifetime so they can be passed on to future generations. Preservation Week, sponsored by the American Library Association, is designed to highlight this need and inspire actions to preserve personal, family, and community collections of all kinds. Our staff will share their expertise to help you get started with two programs – one focused on books and paper and the other on photos.

In celebration of Preservation Week, the Book Arts & Special Collections Center, and the San Francisco History Center present:

Save Your Stuff & Pass It On: Books & Paper: Learn some tips, tricks, and basic repairs for common problems. You are invited to bring a favorite item for evaluation. However, please note: We will not be able to repair your materials for you at this event. Tuesday, April 26, 2016, 6:00 p.m. Latino/Hispanic Rooms A & B, Main Library, Lower Level.
