The purchase of preservation supplies and environmental monitoring equipment for the Luzerne County Historical Society’s local history collection, under the auspices of the Wyoming Historical and Geological Society. The historical society holds an estimated 250,000 items in its museum, library, archives, and two historic house museums. Among these materials are 40,000 Native American artifacts, 3,000 textiles, 10,000 glass and ceramic items, 2,000 pieces of art, 5,000 pieces of furniture, 40,000 household items, 15,000 photographs, 400 maps, 3,000 blueprints, 500 rolls of microfilm, 15,000 books, and 2,000 cubic feet of manuscripts. The collection is used for research (publications, genealogy, History Day projects), public programs, and exhibitions; the public has access both on-site (four days a week) and online.

The Luzerne County Historical Society is seeking a Preservation Assistance Grant to purchase storage supplies to better house our collection of objects and documents. We are also seeking funding for data loggers and a lux meter to monitor the environmental conditions of our museum and library.
