Have you ever seen a piece of artwork in your library and thought, “Where did that come from?” Or have you wondered what the summer reading program theme at your library was ten years ago? What was the name of the architect that designed your library's building? Many librarians struggle to maintain an accurate and comprehensive record of their history. Though creating an archive for your library's history may seem like an insurmountable challenge, it is possible! This program will provide a simple overview of what needs to be done to ensure that your library’s unique history is maintained and accessible for years to come. You will gain the basic tools to begin recording and storing your library's history—no matter how limited your resources are.
