Preserving Your Family Scrapbooks with the Oyster Bay Historical Society

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Scrapbooking is the art of decorating pages with mementos and written materials from the events that have touched our lives. Unfortunately, your inherited family scrapbooks might be fragile due to the types of materials used or from improper storage. On Tuesday, October 15th, 2013 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., Nicole Menchise, Archivist for the Oyster Bay Historical Society, will hold an informal seminar to discuss common materials and their aging processes and options for long term preservation in honor of Archives Week. Free to members of the Oyster Bay Historical Society (with special membership opportunities to those living in the 11771 zip code), $15 for non-members. The seminar will take place at the Koenig Research Center (behind the Earle-Wightman House), 20 Summit Street, Oyster Bay, NY. Attendees are encouraged to bring a scrapbook with them to discuss their individual challenges. Light refreshments will be served. Contact the Society at 516-922-5032 or email obhslibrary@optonline.net for details or to make a reservation.
