Issaquah bookbinder among handful at libraries nationwide still operating a ‘mendery’ | The Seattle Times

Donald Vass works at restoring a book at the King County Library System’s central service center in Issaquah.

Vass has spent the past 26 years mending and tending to books for the county library system. (RUTH FREMSON/NYT)
