The safety of historical library and archive collections depends above all on the conditions in which they are kept.
The Tschammer Library and Archives were in need of the greatest investment. Their collections had been stored for almost three hundred years in the aisles of the Church of Jesus, on the second and third storeys, in conditions which diverged significantly from any recognised standards of storage. As part of the project, these stores were divided by building partitions walls and internal double glazed windows, equipped with reinforced doors and external double glazed windows, and CCTV monitored fire and security systems.
Heating, water and sewage systems were installed in the rooms, the lighting was replaced, the floor was repaired and the walls freshly painted. Metal display cases were installed in the modernised rooms, as were thermohygrographs, and mobile air conditioning equipment, namely air dryers, desiccant dehumidifiers, coolers and air filters.
Finally, furniture for the librarians and readers were bought, as well as display cases for the Museum of Protestantism in Cieszyn Silesia, which was opened during the implementation of the project.
