Many different things wind up in libraries, but all of them are made up of materials that deteriorate. The librarian’s job is to make these things last as long as they can, despite the forces of nature and time, man and industry. Sidney Berger, the Ann C. Pingree director of the Peabody Essex Museum’s Phillips Library, will introduce you to the nature of the library’s physical world and the preservation and conservation tactics employed to extend the useful life of objects in "Nature vs. the Book: Preserving Library Collections." The presentation starts at 7 p.m. at the Salem Athenaeum, 337 Essex St., Salem. Cost is $10 for Athenaeum members, $15 for nonmembers, free for students with ID. In addition, the opening reception of the Athenaeum's new exhibit, "All About Books," starts at 6 p.m. with Win Wilkens. Reserve a spot at 978-744-2540 or
