Helpful Hints in the Proper Care of Books

Follow this essential code of conduct for the preservation of books:

1. Don’t eat or drink around books

2. Don’t pull books from the tops of their spines

3. Don’t use paper clips to mark your place

4. Don’t force books open for copying

Preservation also requires good environmental conditions:

2. Set books too tall for the shelf on their spines

3. Keep books upright on shelves and use bookends

Proper care makes for happy books!
