$20,000 Goal


Friends of the Yolo County Archives hopes to raise $20,000 to fund two Extra Help Library Assistant positions, preserve and protect archival collections, and support staff professional development for the next fiscal year. 

The Extra Help staff will be working to:

a.)    Digitize photographs, maps, and documents related to death and burials.

b.)    Create catalog records for digitized and born-digital materials to make them more findable and accessible.

c.)    Rehouse and protect donated collections with newly purchased archival supplies.

With last year’s funding, Extra Help staff have been able to digitize and catalog 2,253 photographs. Additionally, staff and volunteers have rehoused and cataloged 31 collections for 34 linear feet of material.

If you are able, please help us reach our goal.


Friends of the Yolo County Archives was founded in November 1986, to support the Archive's mission of making the County's archival records accessible to the public through volunteer help and financial assistance. Since that time, the Friends have volunteered countless hours in the Archives, raised funds to pay professional salaries, and purchased equipment and supplies to help ensure the long-term preservation and accessibility of our shared history.
