Recently Restored

Jones Memorial Library actively acquires, preserves, and stewards books, documents, artwork, and other material of enduring cultural importance. 

Pictured below are a few of the items recently restored by the Library. As items are repaired and restored, they return to our collection and are preserved under protocols that reduce further damage.  While many restored items are held in restricted access, our practice is to make preservation quality images publicly available through online access in Digital Jones.

The library has a limited budget for the conservation of items in need of repair.  Unrestricted monetary gifts to the library’s Annual Fund support conservation projects, ongoing stewardship of the collections, and related programming – thank you!
