For the past 99 years, the Monroe County Historical Association (MCHA) has amassed a large collection of photographs and postcards. The organization receives photograph and postcard donations on a weekly basis and the cost to properly preserve these contributions increases. Thanks to our grant, MCHA will purchase archival polyester sleeve protectors for the photograph and postcard collections. These sleeve protectors safeguard photographs, postcards, and other items from dust, dirt, and scratches during storage and/or while handling. The sleeves are made of an acid-free material to ensure that neither the sleeve nor the adjacent print would chemically react with the print. Preserving these local images will ensure that the museum and library collections can be accessible to the public while being preserved for future generations.
