Do you feel a gnawing guilt over all the spines you’ve cracked, all the pages you’ve dog-eared? Oh, the books that have suffered for your love!
Now you can assuage your conscience with the Adopt-A-Book program from the Smithsonian Libraries. Through the program, you can choose a damaged or deteriorating book and provide for its conservation. Don’t you want to preserve that old book smell for the ages?
