The Baylor Libraries, the Department of Museum Studies, and the Mayborn Museum Complex will sponsor a Preservation Fair during National Preservation Week. The fair will be held Thursday, April 27 from 5:30 to 7 PM in the Community Room of the Mayborn Museum. Admission to the fair is free and does not include admission to the museum.
The items we inherit and collect come in all formats – photos, paper documents of all types, metal, glass, wood, stone, leather, textiles, audio and video tape and even oral histories. The Preservation Fair has brought together a variety of preservation resources. Students from Baylor University’s Department of Museum Studies, as well as specialists from the Baylor Libraries, the Waco-McLennan County Libraries, and the Baylor and Waco community, will be available to answer your questions on how to take care of your family items.
No appraisals will be done.
