Learn how to protect and preserve your family photos and documents at a special preservation workshop from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6, at the Winters Community Library, 708 Railroad Ave. This event, to which the public is invited, is sponsored by the Winters History Project Committee.

Meredith Sarmento, Yolo County’s newly appointed archivist and records center coordinator, will speak about the best preservation practices, things to avoid and some basic conservation and repairs that folks can do at home.

Included will be a discussion of some resources for archival storage and conservation services, as well as a demonstration of digital scanning and the use of the archives’ hand-held portable scanner that is used for large and delicate items such as maps.

Participants may bring a limited number of photographs or documents and a flash drive, so their items can be scanned and digital copies can be created. This service is free.

In the case of historic photographs pertaining to the Winters area, the Winters History Project Committee would like permission to keep a digital copy of those items for its growing collection, according to spokesman Tom Crisp, who is a weekly volunteer at the Archives and also serves on the board of the Friends of the Yolo County Archives.

Sarmento has an undergraduate background in archaeology and anthropology, with a bachelor’s degree from UC Santa Cruz in 2010. In 2012, she graduated from San Jose State University with a master’s degree in information sciences, with an emphasis in records management.

Before moving to Woodland in August, she was employed at Cabrillo Community College in Aptos as a copy cataloger, adjunct reference librarian, instructor and archivist. She is also a proud Air Force veteran, having served four years in South Korea as a cryptologic linguist.

For more information call Nicki Chapman at 530-795-2676 or the Winters Community Library at 530-795-4855.
