Synopsis:

Memorabilia and family heirlooms are treasures that can be easily damaged by heat, humidity, light, pests and even handling.

All objects deteriorate over time, but there are ways you can store and handle these keepsakes that will keep degradation at bay.

Learn more about keeping your paper documents, books, scrapbooks, jewellery and more, safe from the ravages of time!

A practical video on binding a book from loose sheets will be featured after the presentation.
