Soncino-Gesellschaft

80 years ago in the night of November 9-10, 1938 Nazi Germany unleashed terror on its Jewish citizens. The ‘Reichskristallnacht’ marked the beginning of the Nazis’ implementation of their ‘final solution’, the annihilation of the Jewish population and with it the destruction of Jewish culture and civilization. In this post we look at the society, the Soncino-Gesellschaft as an example of the rich Jewish culture which was destroyed by Nazi Germany.

Love our books, don’t damage them!

image for blog1

As we really get into the term it is easy to become lost in study, and it is possible to lose track of which books belong to a library. Try not to mark books (in general, really!) with pen, pencil, or highlighter. Instead, use post it notes, or even scrap paper, to mark pages of interest. We have sticky markers at the main issue desk or on our first floor, free to take.

 

Damaged books need replacing, as markings make text difficult to read. When we scan text for visually impaired readers, the pages need to be free from marks. By checking our books on a regular basis, we ensure they have a long shelf life. You can help by reporting any damage you find inside any items you have on loan.

 

Once a book has been damaged, it will unfortunately attract more damage. Even pencil, which can be erased, will leave a mark.

 

We do keep some books in the library as examples of what can happen if we do not stay on top of this increasing problem. If you have any questions about damage to books, do get in touch. We are always happy to suggest ways that will make study easier.

With all of our reader’s help, we can preserve our wonderful collection for many more years and generations of readers to come- thanks for reading!
