What is Preservation Week?
Preservation Week is April 26 through May 2,2020. The week-long event emphasizes the need to save and care for the archival, local, and family history collections held by institutions–like libraries, archives, and museums–and individuals.
Preservation Week is an initiative of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library Association, and celebrated in Georgia’s public libraries with educational events, exhibits, and activities. This year, ALCTS celebrates 10 years of Preservation Week!
Preservation Week’s 2020 Honorary Chair is bestselling author, educator and cultural critic Roxane Gay.
