A preservation assessment of the library's local history collection, the purchase of preservation supplies, and staff participation in the Western Archives Institute training program. The library's holdings, dating from the founding of the City of Ontario in 1882, document the region's citrus industry, manufacturing development, and environmental history.

The Ontario City Library Model Colony History Room contains information and collections related to the history of the people, industries, agriculture, and city establishment of Ontario, California and the surrounding areas. The project itself will consist of three parts: Firstly, a preservation assessment will be completed by a professional consultant, which will also include an 18-month environmental assessment. The assessment will provide the History Room with a plan of action for preservation of its collections. Secondly, staff will purchase preservation supplies to aid in bringing the storage conditions of the collections up to standard practices. Thirdly, the program will provide training for the primary staff member of the History Room through participation in the 2009 Western Archives Institute training program sponsored by the California State Archives. The completion of the project will help ensure that the History Room collections continue to exists for future generations.
