CCHS wants to heed this sound advice by holding an Emergency Preparedness Supply Drive. Help us protect our collections by donating supplies that could be used in the event of a collection emergency. Our buildings are protected by fire suppression sprinklers but wet objects are vulnerable to mold, rust, and degradation. If a water intrusion should occur, the following supplies would be useful in responding quickly. Please bring your donated items to the CCHS Library and drop them in our blue “Recovery Can.” Your assistance is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
