                        In 1986, up to 500,000
Fire and Water Damage
                        volumes at the Los
                        Angeles Public Library
                        were destroyed in a fire
                        set by an arsonist, while
                        about 600,000 were
                        damaged by water.

                        Well over half a million
                        wet books were frozen to
                        protect them against
                        mold. Drying and
                        cleaning alone cost two
                        million dollars.
What’s your score?
