HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I - An exhibit kicks off at Hamilton Library at UH about preventable damage to library collections entitled It Came from the Stacks!!! The purpose of this exhibit is to raise awareness among all library users and staff about the value of library materials, show what the consequences are of mistreating materials, and demonstrate how we can work together as a community to care for and preserve them.
This exhibit is a part of a larger national preservation week campaign spearheaded by the American Library Association, Pass It On, happening April 24 through April 30, 2011. During this campaign, libraries across the country will be participating and holding their own events to help connect library users with preservation tools and strategies.
