BDC Offers Preservation Tips

As the Library system’s special local history collection and archives, the BDC is responsible for providing good stewardship of the cultural heritage materials we hold in trust for the community. Preservation Week allows us to highlight what we can do, individually and together, to preserve our personal and shared collections. We want to help you take better care of your family history "stuff."
