[BKARTS] fixing a library book on the sly



What I would do is talk to them first and ask about doing repairs to
it. Let them know your background, skills, etc. Let them decide
whether they want you to take the time and effort, let them decide
whether it's something they'd rather just replace.

I haven't heard of anyone doing this, but I would think it would be
bad form: disregard of the library's ownership. If you want to fix
something, offer to them to do it.

Has anyone on this list ever checked out a dilapidated book from a
library and re-bound it without telling them and then just put the
barcode back on and returned it like nothing ever happened? Have you
ever heard of anyone doing this?
