Re: [BKARTS] secret book repair



I'd repair the book and then a little later I'd meet with the head librarian and offer your services
on a limited basis, if that's something that interests you.

pam, librarian of one kind but wishing to do something else now



See, I have a favorite book from a local university library and it is
totally falling apart. It would be so easy to fix. It is not
particularly old or valuable or anything, and I am pretty sure that I
am the only person who even knows it exists. I love the book and I
want to fix it so they don't throw it out. I know I could just point
out the damage to them, but I'm afraid that if I did they would throw
it out immediately rather than spend time or money fixing it. I work
as a bookbinder who specializes in repair, and it would be so easy
for me to fix this book. Do you all think that these thoughts of mine
are totally unethical? Or maybe you think I am very generous for
wanting to repair a book free-of-charge? Thanks for the advice,
Frances
