Re: [BKARTS]



I do a variation of this pretty often. Hymn books at my church get abused
over the years by restless children. The particular books have not been
bound particularly well. Whenever I sit in a pew that has a book in need of
repair, I depart with it after services, clean and repair it during the
week, and return it the next Sunday. I doubt no one has noticed and it makes
me feel good.

I'd say that if any group is capable of making responsible repairs--and
respecting the integrity of books enough to know where the book should be
left alone--it is this group.

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?
