Experimental Book Maintenance

Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
One of the tasks performed at libraries is book repair. We try to repair minor issues (like torn pages) first here at the Pesky Library rather than outsource them to a professional.

These two books have discoloration on their covers. We wanted to try and rule out mold by placing the books in the sun for a while. (The brick is merely preventing the pages from being blown open, since it was an extremely windy day.)
