The April 24-30 Preservation Week theme is "Preservation in the Face of Climate Change" and will highlight the effects of climate change on our shared cultural heritage materials. The papers, photographs, ephemera, and other materials held by both institutions and individuals can be integral to telling the story of the human impact on the environment. During Preservation Week, libraries, museums, institutions, and communities are urged to examine the effects on collections and their keepers, as well as resiliency strategies. 

The Honorary Chair for this year’s Preservation Week is Elizabeth Yeampierre, Executive Director of the Brooklyn-based Latinx community organization UPROSE. These free webinars will be offered:
