Scrapbooking workshop set at Gunn Library

The Gunn Memorial Library on Wykeham Road in Washington will hold a free scrapbook preservation workshop Sept. 15 at 3 p.m.

Deb Wender, a national expert from Northeast Document Conservation Center in Massachusetts, will teach participants how to care for their old scrapbooks so that they'll survive for future generations.

Participants are encouraged to bring a scrapbook from their collection for hands-on examination and discussion.

Patrons will also be able to view the exhibit "The Keepers of History: Scrapbooks and Albums," which includes many scrapbooks featured in Jessica Helfand's new book, "Scrapbooks: An American History," on display next door at the Gunn Museum.

Space is limited. For more information and registration, call 860-868-7756.
