Preserving and Protecting the Denton Public Library Special Collections

The purchase of preservation supplies for rehousing significant portions of the library's special collections. These materials focus on the history of Denton and the state of Texas and are heavily used by authors, educators, and family historians in the region and beyond.

The Denton Public Library proposes to use the funding from the NEH Preservation Assistance Grant to purchase archival supplies to rehouse and protect the materials in the Denton Public Library Special Collections. The project will focus on the three collections within the Special Collections: Genealogy, Texana, and Denton, Texas. Each collection contains a variety of materials in various formats, including: monographs, serials, pamphlets, audio tapes, maps, photographs, newspapers, microforms, scrapbooks, historic vertical files, and rare books.
