Luzerne County Historical Society receives grant

(August 15, 2019)

The Luzerne County Historical Society has received a Preservation Assistance Grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The grant is valued at $9,358.

The society will purchase data loggers to track temperature and humidity in its buildings, a light meter to monitor light levels in exhibition and storage areas, and a variety of archival-quality storage materials, including boxes, tissue and wrapping paper, artifact ID tags, corrugated board, mat board, polyester film sleeves, acid-free envelopes, legal-size archival document boxes and folders and map folders.

Purchasing and using these items will help the society to prolong the life of its collection, protecting it from harmful exposure to light, acidic materials and sub-optimum environmental conditions.
