What to get the person that has everything? New socks? Zen waterfall?
How about adopting a wax cylinder in need of archival preservation?
It costs the library $60 to preserve a single cylinder, including rehousing, cataloging, and digitizeing it for public access. We currently have a backlog of over 1,000 cylinders that are not yet digitized.
If you would like to “adopt” a cylinder, we will prioritize the digitization of a cylinder and put it online for you and others to listen to. A $60 tax deductible donation* to the cylinder project will ensure the preservation of the cylinder of your choice.
