“Your personal collection may include scrapbooks, photographs, letters, Bibles, christening gowns, home movies, and so much more. What I’d like to provide for your community is an opportunity to learn how damage occurs and how to protect those items from any future damage, so that their family’s history can endure for as long as possible.”
Nicole Menchise, archivist and collections manager
Oyster Bay Historical Society
Thursday, April 9 2015 at 2:00 pm.
Refreshments will be served.
Nicole Menchise will speak about preserving the items we hold most dear – our unique family treasures – including a discussion of best practices for handling, displaying and long-term storage for papers, books, textiles, photographs and film.
Included in the workshop are examples taken from the collection of the Society. Attendees are encouraged to bring items that they feel need to be discussed specifically. No appraisals will be given as this is strictly regarding preservation practices.
