Yale Hosts Thawing of the Books Event

On Tuesday, August 19, many of the rare books damaged in the Law School explosion in May will be removed from the freezer where they have been stored.

Head of the Yale Library preservation department, Bobby Pilette, and colleagues will exhibit the Law School books and will explain the process of reversing water damage. They will also give a demonstration of the complex work of book conservators generally.

Members of the media are invited to attend this unique event, which will take place at 2 p.m. at the Conservation Laboratory of Sterling Memorial Library, 120 High St. For access to the library, use the entrance on Wall St.
