Preservation Week 2022

by Maggie Halterman-Dess

Did you know that the last week of April is Preservation Week? Sponsored by the American Library Association’s Core subdivision, this annual event is an opportunity to bring awareness support needed to maintain collections long-term, whether family photographs and records or the wide variety of formats held by libraries, archives, museums, and historical societies.

This year’s theme is “Preservation in the Face of Climate Change,” and the honorary chair is climate and environmental justice advocate Elizabeth Yeampierre, executive director of UPROSE, a Latinx community organization based in Brooklyn.
