Notes

Abstract:
Recent changes in the recycling industry have made it impossible to recycle our discarded books without debinding them first. Last summer in an effort to solve this problem our library began researching various options. This lightning talk will discuss our findings and share the steps we are taking to create a sustainable solution.
