Adopt-A-Book launch, 5 September

All LSHTM staff and students are invited to a lunch reception to launch Adopt-A-Book.

Thursday 5 September 2013, 12.30 - 2 pm in the Library.

Come and meet the books up for adoption and discuss their preservation and conservation needs with Library staff.

As one of the world's leading schools of public and global health, we believe it is our responsibility to ensure the history of our subjecct is preserved for future generations. Your donation to Adopt-A-Book will be used to fund a variety of preservation and conservation activities. Almost half of our rare books require a made-to-measure protective cover and support, which helps protect the book from further deterioration. The Library can make basic repairs in-house, but items which have suffered serious damage require specialist work from a trained book conservator.

It is possible to adopt an individual title or subject area, as well as contribute to the general conservation of our historical collections. Adopting a book from the School's collections is a great way to mark an event, remember the life of a friend, relation or colleague, or show your support for the work of the Library.

For more information about Adopt-A-Book, see our website or email the Library.
