Flood: Drying Books and Valuable Papers
If you can't work with your books immediately, freeze them to control mold growth.
Dry books and papers slowly.
Photocopy important documents and papers. Even if they seem to have dried successfully, they may later disintegrate because of materials in the flood water.
For more information, read "Procedures for Salvage of Water-Damaged Library Materials" by the Library of Congress. Check with your local library for a copy.
Or call your County Extension Service for further recommendations. You'll find their 800 number in the telephone book under University of Maine Extension Service.
