There is a clear book repair tape available that does not yellow made by
Scotch - it is called Scotch Book Tape. The numbers on the box I have say -
845 in large type and 07383-0 in smaller type right under the 845. It is made
by 3M.

I have used it to repair many, many children's books that I used in the
classroom when I taught, and the librarian used it in the media center as
I do not remember where I bought it, but seems like I ordered it from a
library supply company rather then purchased it at a store.  I would bet you
could order it from Highsmith catalog.
