One of the things I have been looking into is a way to store old books so they do not deteriorate as fast. Storing books in cardboard boxes is very bad and will harm the books because of the acid in the cardboard. I found the video below on youtube and will try it out on a couple of books that I have. One being a bible that has been hand to her from her great grandparents and is about 100 years old.
Once I have make my own box, i will post the results.
