Our new preservation storage addition is beginning to be filled! We have sorted artifacts and items to put on the shelves. There are a few details that need to be finished, but it is ready for occupancy . The process of moving into the facility has gone well so far. We have purchased some appropriate shelving and repurposed some from the Livingston Center. Habit for Humanity has agreed to help us with some shelving. There will still be lots of supplies needed: archival tissue paper, boxes and containers, as we prepare these items in their new space. These will have to be purchased, so it depends on the amount of funds we can secure for this purpose.
Every item has had the dust and dirt removed, but when things are cataloged or exhibited, they will need an extra touch up or cleaning before being stored or shown. There is a small selection of some items we found interesting in digging them out of the Livingston Center on exhibit in the lobby. We can use volunteers moving forward to do some scanning and helping with cataloging, if you are interested please call the office (715-536-5652), and we will add you to the list.
