Preservation Week: Pass the Pages

April 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Don’t throw away your old books! Trade them! It’s Preservation Week, and Pass the Pages at the Museum of South Texas History will provide your old books with new life. Instead of throwing away old books, exchange them or share them with participating organizations which include The South Texas Literacy Coalition, McAllen Public Library, Dustin Michael Sekula Memorial Library, UTRGV Book Buzz and UTRGV special collections. To celebrate Preservation Week, MOSTHistory is hosting these organizations that will have books available to exchange and will also be accepting donations of previously owned books. The first 100 people to take books home will receive a FREE MOSTHistory tote bag.

Preservation Week is an annual event founded by several national organizations including the American Library Association and the Library of Congress.  The goal of Preservation Week is to connect communities through events, activities, and resources that highlight what can be done to preserve our personal and shared collections.

This event is FREE. For more information, please contact the museum at 956-383-6911.
