Local Preservation Happenings

I'm looking forward to seeing friend and colleague Jeanne Drewes return to mid-Michigan in September. Jeanne was the Assistant Director for Preservation at Michigan State University Libraries (which is how I got to know her) and then moved on to become Chief of Bindings and Collection Care at the Library of Congress.

Jeanne is coming to town to lead the first session of a two-part workshop on Risk Management and Disaster Recovery through the Midwest Collaborative for Library Services. The first session is Sept. 10.

The evening before she is leading a public talk on Preserving Family Treasures at the Delta Township District Library. If you can't make 6 pm at the library, the event will be live streamed and made available for later viewing. And yes, yours truly will be part of the Q&A session. (I seldom have a conversation with Jeanne where the conversation doesn't end with me doing some new thing - like taking part in her presentation.)

I'm always happy to see preservation training events happening in and around mid-Michigan. And, I'm always happy to see Jeanne who has been a mentor, and is an amazing font of energy and activity.
