I have to strip books at my job in the library. It basically involves using a very weird 'metal hook' tool and another long flat tool to pull little green strips of plastic through the spine of the book. Ooh, the point is that there's a little magnetic strip on the plastic, and when you get it in the spine, it sticks there, that way you can magnetize books to set off the alarm.


well... not really...
