Two workshops aimed at helping prepare emergency plans for preserving important records will take place in southern Vermont next month.
The Vermont Historical Records Advisory Board is partnering with the Northeast Document Conservation Center to host the workshops.
The workshops are April 3 at the Bennington Free Library in Bennington and April 23 at the River Valley Technical Center in Springfield.
