April 24 - 30 is Preservation Week @ Your Library

April 19, 2011

 

The Boynton Beach City Library will join the American Library Association and libraries all over the country to promote awareness of collection preservation. The theme this year is "Pass It On."  Mayor Rodriguez has proclaimed April 24 - 30 Preservation Week in Boynton Beach.

The Boynton Beach City Library has bookmarks to give away featuring preservation techniques for books, photographs, paper materials and electronic media. The library website features the ALA "Pass It On" logo.

There is a special display for Preservation Week in the case inside the north entrance to the Boynton Beach City Library. The case features books about preserving family treasures and several special items from the archive collections.

The public is invited to share a story about a memento or photograph that is special to them that they intend to pass on to the next generation. Forms will be available at both the customer services and information desks.
