A Car Wash for Books

When thinking of libraries of old, most people imagine dusty books sitting upon shelves.  But if you’ve visited a library recently you know that that is most definitely not true anymore!  Thanks to a piece of technological advancement, books are minimally dusty these days, especially in the Boston Public Library.  The BPL describes the Depulvera as a “car wash for books,” a machine that uses gentle fabric rollers to remove dust and grime from books in their closed stacks, looking just like a full sized car wash.

It’s always neat to see behind the scenes at what goes on at your local public library!
