The main lobby of Parks Library
Tuesday, April 25: 9am-11am
Wednesday, April 26: 2pm-4pm
Thursday, April 27: 12noon-2pm
It will be a little bit like Antiques Road Show, but for preservation advice not for appraisals. People bring their old family stuff and ask about how to best preserve it.
Preservation department staff will be on hand to answer questions. We are also going to have guest experts – Pete Sixbey of the State Historical Society of Iowa (on Tuesday) and Suzanne LeSar of the Textiles and Clothing Museum (on Tuesday and Thursday)
We hope to see you there with your stuff!
