museum staff cleaning a book from Carl Sandburg's multi-thousand volume library

There are over 12,000 books in the Main House. It takes over six YEARS to clean all the books in Carl Sandburg's collection. Cleaning books is a routine task for the museum staff at Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site. The books are cleaned to reduce pests like silverfish from eating these valuable artifacts.
