Extraordinary World War One artefacts including the personal letters of servicemen from Orange – drawn from the State Library of NSW’s renowned collections – are heading to Orange for a special curator talk and preservation workshop on Thursday 29 October.
The State Library’s World War I Curator Elise Edmonds will talk about the material and share the fascinating story of how the Library acquired its first collection of solders’ diaries – this collection was recently inscribed in the UNESCO Australian Memory of the World Register.
As part of the Touring Program a conservator from the State Library will present a practical workshop on preserving your family history collections, including letters, journals and photographs.
The Preservation Workshop will be held at 3.30pm – 4.30pm and the Artefacts Talk from 5.30pm to 6.30pm. For bookings phone 6393 8132.
