Brought to you by the Aroostook Band of Micmacs Tribal Historic Preservation, the National Park Service Tribal Heritage Grant, and the Mark & Emily Turner Memorial Library.  Join us this Sunday for an introduction to the preservation and care of historic artifacts such as scrapbooks, letters, and journals. Participants will learn about paper production and the history of photography, in order to better understand why collections deteriorate. The instructor will discuss the ways that paper artifacts can be damaged, along with methods for mitigating these risks. Simple steps for identifying and correcting improper handling and storage will be addressed. Members of the community will have the opportunity to discuss their own history and artifacts with the group.

INSTRUCTOR: Eva Grizzard, Preservation Specialist, Northeast Document Conservation Center,
