Preservation Week (April 23-29) is an opportunity to bring awareness and connect your community to preservation events, activities, and resources. Visit the ALA website to find resources that can help with saving and caring for items, disaster recovery, and how to get started with preservation. There are also resources (event planner, logos, bookmarks, posters, handouts, etc) available to help plan a Preservation Week event at your library. Two free webinars will be offered live, or view recordings of any of the past Preservation Week webinars.
