This library uses a tiny ‘car wash’ to clean books! There’s no water, of course!

Check out this video from the Boston Public Library! They have a cute little machine that dusts books. It looks like a tiny car wash! Of course, there’s no water…!

The library reports that it doesn’t use the book cleaning machine on rare books because they are too fragile. They also note, “We use the machine when we add books to our Archives Center or when materials from the stacks are requested for use or are being digitized.”
