DAVENPORT, IOWA (March 30, 2021) — Join us in learning how to practically care for and preserve materials at home with tips and tricks from the staff of the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center. Each workshop will showcase different techniques and share applicable knowledge on creating tools and demonstrating methods of preservation for photographs, letters, books, and more.
In this month's Preservation Workshop on Tuesday, April 20, 2PM, we will demonstrate how to make homemade book weights. Books weights are a perfect tool for gently holding a book open, propping them up, and other needs.
We will share the materials you need and instructions to do this at home!
