The Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum in Buffalo and the Trail End State Historic Site in Sheridan are offering classes today to teach people how to protect their family keepsakes and heirlooms.
Sylvia Bruner, Assistant Director and Registrar at the Jim Gatchell Museum, said old photographs are one item they will explore how to preserve properly, and she explains what other kinds of items can be protected.
The classes will be offered today at 9am at the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum and tonight at 6pm at the Sheridan County/Fulmer Public Library, presented by the Trail End State Historic Site.
The classes are free and open to the public and are being offered in conjunction of The American Library Association's Preservation Week.
Bruner said anyone interested in preserving a specific item can bring it to the classes, or just come in to learn how to protect many different kinds of heirlooms.
