The City of Peru’s new mayoral administration is taking stock of some of its historical documents, and in the midst of that, encountered some books which are, in some cases, over 150 years old. After consulting with a local archivist, we discovered the environment these books are in is less than ideal for documents of their age, and in some cases, are just sitting on top of file cabinets because they are too large to fit inside. They need to undergo some conservation efforts to keep them intact for years to come. Included in the collection are original log books from the mayor’s office and the common council, as well as the original play book for the city. We hope to display them in a case for public viewing.
