buildings. Preventive conservation and information on practical ways
to ensure the long-term stability of artifacts and documents will
also be discussed.  The series is tailored for staff and volunteers

other spiritual or religious centers, but is open to all interested
parties. For more information or to register, contact Nicole Hayes
