While we hate to admit it, we all have a book somewhere in the library that should be rushed out for conservation, right? Well the Preservation Committee wants to see photos of those books badly in need of repair. So pull those books out of the stacks, take a picture or two and send the photos with the book's title and copyright information as well as a brief description of its condition to Maxine Wright [firstname.lastname@example.org] by July 1.
This year's winner will receive up to $150 towards the conservation and/repairs of an item or other preservation-related activities. More information about the contest is available here.
