Boxes for Books - Save Our Rare Books!‚Äč HSMC has over 300 rare books in its collection. So that future generations may enjoy and use the books for research, each one will be preserved in an acid-free box measured to fit. You can help by buying a box. They are $10 each and our staff will create a label for each box with the donor's name or a designated name on it. For the person who had everything, this would be a great opportunity to honor a loved one.
