Caring for your Collections
The Stark Foundation’s Library & Archive is hosting “Caring for Your Collections” a family workshop on July 21, 2018.

There are two sessions on July 21, one in the morning from 10:00 am -12:00 pm and again in the afternoon from 1:00 – 3:00pm. Workshops will take place in the new Education Center, at the Stark Museum of Art. There is a $25 material fee, per family.

Families will receive an archive starter kit. It includes a lightproof document box and archival quality storage supplies such as polyester envelopes and acid-free folders.

“Hurricane Harvey taught us how quickly we can lose family treasures,” said Jenniffer Hudson Connors, Manager of the Eunice R. Benckenstein Library & Archive. “This workshop will share ways families can protect their photographs, letters, and documents for future generations. “Floods are not the only threat,” said Hudson Connors, “insects, light, and humidity also damage collections every day. We’ll talk about caring for textiles, like that old letter jacket or christening gown, too.”
