Celebrate Preservation Week

The week after National Library Week (NLW, April 14 - 20), it's Preservation Week (April 21 - 27). According to the ALCTS: 
Libraries and other institutions can use Preservation Week to connect our communities through events, activities, and resources that highlight what we can do, individually and together, to preserve our personal and shared collections. Get involved! You don't need a lot of time or money, you just need to get started.
  • create a display about preserving and collecting personal, family, or community heritage
  • offer a preservation workshop or event
  • highlight Preservation Week on your website with a logo linked to ALA’s Preservation Week resources
  • Tweet about Preservation Week #preswk.
The Event Toolkit makes it easy to celebrate by giving you a free, pre-written Press Kit and elevator speech, along with logos, photos, bookmark templates, etc. It's interesting that there's even a tool to help you evaluate your event afterward. One of libraries' important duties is preserving history and heritage, so join in and remind everyone about how valuable this is!
