Processing the book S. by JJ Abrams was an adventure!

Here at Tualatin Public Library we had our expert "obscure book" processor manage this. She didn't want to interrupt the concept of the book or the readers enjoyment in how we managed all the pieces, so she kept everything on the page it was originally found. Affixing items with book tape so they can still be read and providing clear pockets (meant for discs) for the more delicate/intricate items such as the napkin. Reinforcing the spine and outer box and adding our special labels and marks she sent it on its way. It looks amazing and is very user friendly, but it was a bit of work for only two books.

They have circulated a total of 9 times so far and we have yet to get them back for repair.
