Accidents Happen: Protecting & Saving Family Treasures Webinar
Presented by the American Library Association
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM       Room 2301
Accidents and disasters happen. When one does are you prepared? Are your family treasures stored safely in your home or elsewhere? How do you save your photos when they’ve been submerged in flood water? What do you do if your books smell mildewy? What if your basement floods or worse? Attend this session to learn answers to these questions and more. Kraft will provide tips and tools for checking out possible hazards around the house, dealing with mold and salvaging keepsakes, documenting damage for insurance purposes, and keeping your family safe.

Book Repair Tips and Tricks
Wednesday, April 27, 2011 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM (30 minute sessions)     Library
A personal library is an investment that should last a lifetime—but sometimes life and books don’t mix well. From a child’s overeager hands, to your favorite book being read a few too many times, your treasured tomes may see some damage over the years. Come and see a demonstration of common book repairs, as well as the tools and materials needed. Bring your own damaged books for guidance and repair, as well as any other preservation questions you have.

Preserving Your Personal Digital Memories Webinar
Presented by the American Library Association Thursday, April 28, 2011 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM      Room 2301
Digital photos, electronic documents, and other new media are fragile and require special care to keep them useable. But preserving digital information is a new concept that most people have little experience with. As new technologies appear for creating and saving our personal digital information, older ones become obsolete, making it difficult to access older content. Learn about the nature of the problem and hear about some simple, practical tips and tools to help you keep your digital memories safe.

Registration is required for all events.
