#1110: BiblioTech

Left to their own devices, books accumulate bugs and dust. Today’s invention provides a way to keep the atmosphere in libraries fresher and less hazardous to asthmatics.

It consists of a pair of bookends and a series of small clips. The clips attach to the book covers, as shown.

The bookends, which are mounted on small wheels, are driven slowly outwards and inwards by a motor in each -creating a bellows effect between the pages of the books.

The frequency and amplitude of the bookend motors’ movement can be selected by the user.
