I have some old yearbooks and the pages are yellowed and starting to come loose. What would you do?

One idea - go to Kinko's, have them put covers on them and drill the holes for coil binding but I'm afraid the paper is so old... one is from 1964

Another idea - go ahead and take it apart and copy all the pages on new paper - go ahead an let Kinko's coil bind with covers

There sure be better ideas - anyone? I love, Love, LOVE these old books! Help please?

Im just subbing. My oldest Wilton year books are older than I am, I think my oldest one is from '72 (I was born in '81). I keep them in a storage bin as much as possible because they are really starting to fall apart too. Id love to hear some suggestions too.

My thought was to get a scrapbook and carefully slice out the pages from the book and slip each page into one of the clear page protectors. That way they are totally protected.

I bought 2 boxes of sheet protectors and some large notebooks from Sam's. I took my books apart, placed each page in a sheet protector and then in the notebook.

That was going to be my suggestion. I sliced out the wedding cake pages from all of mine ... put them in the sleeves and have them in my "wedding cake pics NOT made by me" binder.

If you want a really permanent way of preserving the pages of the books, I can give you a suggestion. Run them through a Xyorn machine that has a double sided laminate cartridge in it. It has archival adhesive that is used. It will stop any deterioration.

That would really get expensive fast. Those Xyron laminate cartridges are not cheap....but you're right, it would stop further deterioration.

I have dozens of yearbooks - almost every one since 1976 plus their pattern books. I look at them often. Are there any other ideas to keep them together? Thanks though for all the ideas so far!
