Book Guard is a laminated adhesive book cover that helps books last up to 4 times longer. You can use Book Guard to reinforce brand new paperbacks and periodicals or to repair your older, damaged books to keep them in circulation for a few more years.

Book Guard's wrap-around design offers double-reinforcement of the spine and hinges and helps prevent dog-eared corners, stains, and markings. But don't take our word for it, get it for yourself and see why it's been a #1 choice among librarians since 1978.
