Why is it not a good idea to use sticky notes in books?
While sticky notes are certainly useful, they can damage paper. The residue they leave behind attracts dirt, causes pages to stick together, and stains paper over time. When sticky notes are pulled from fragile pages in old books, they can also tear the paper. To help preserve collections here in the libraries, please use bookmarks or strips of paper to mark your pages.
