The Library Celebrates National Preservation Week

The State Library is celebrating National Preservation Week with a week-long display and a Brown Bag session.

Please visit the library this week to see a display on the ways water can impact books and what library staff can do to salvage the materials. The display will be available in the main reading room throughout the week. The library is open to the public from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.

On Thursday the 13th, please join us for a Brown Bag on Preserving Family Papers from noon to 1:30 pm. Bring your lunch and visit the State Library to learn how to apply preservation techniques used in the library to preserve your family papers. You may sign up by calling the Reference Department at (617) 727-2590 or by emailing

We hope to see you this week!
