Proper Book Storage

Published in Blog
  • It's never too late to fall in love with a good book, nor is it very difficult. My favorite types of books are always fiction. Reading the pages and suddenly being transported to a different time, place, planet or even dimension is thrilling. Being in a character's mind, feeling what they are feeling, be it happy, sad, angry, it's all so wild! 
  • Because of the importance of books we need to make sure to take care of them. Whether you are downsizing your home or are storing books with plans to pass them down to loved ones, books need to be stored correctly. The best type of storage is Climate Control. To avoid warping and discoloration you'll need a climate unit and acid free boxes and tape. With a large enough unit setting up shelving is a good idea, it enables air flow and keeps boxes from caving in on one another. Many storage facility offices have a moisture absorber for purchase, such as DampRid.
  • A good book deserves to be stored justly!
  • Mardi Gras has come and gone! We hope everyone had a fun and safe time this carnival season. Before you know it, that warm Mississippi sunshine will be here. Our Waveland, Gulfport and Gautier facilities are offering a 1/2 off the first 2 months plus the $15 admin fee Move In Special for climate control units, sizes 10x10 or larger all month long.  Don't forget to call ahead for availability!
