On-Site Library Maintenance

Perhaps the most important measure of a properly maintained library is the extent to which its volumes can be handled by the reader with confidence.

An on-site visit to your library will allow us to appraise the condition of your books, make certain immediate initial repairs, and develop an overall plan for the restoration and long-term protection of your collection.  The initial maintenance visit will include minor repairs such as the reattachment of loose spine labels, plates and pages, and the recoloring of scuffed and worn edges.  Where appropriate, degraded leather may be treated with a leather consolidation agent.

If you personally maintain your library, please remember that oiling certain leathers such as pigskin and sheepskin, or extremely dry and cracked leather is not recommended. Doing so may result in discoloration and a weakening of the leather.
