from the bindery: lent lint

This damaged slip greeted me the other day as i was reviewing books for repair. . . . So i read the attached note:

Everything is wrong about this....but also so funny!!! For one thing, you don't repair anything that is lent to you by another library in the interlibrary loan system. For another thing, you never use tape (4 letter word, remember???) I loved that this patron was aware of the problem of the tape's stickiness to devise a way of making it less sticky--

---lint from their jeans! (it's still pretty sticky)
