Another day, another flood.

I spent this past Saturday boxing up sopping wet books. Fun. And yes, in case you were wondering, the inks used on some of those old cloth covered books are indeed water soluble! And let me assure you, old wet books smell very bad. Those books are now on their way to be freeze dried in Texas ya'll.

You know what's interesting? ALL of the L. Ron Hubbard books were in fine condition...

!!! I saw this cross-posted on the ILL Listserv! It's weird when internet-world and real-life cross paths like this...

Anyway, one ILL librarian from NHM will be hoping for the best for you!

Commiserations. Been there (too often!) and it's not fun.
