We are looking for a way to keep the stickers from peeling up off of the covers of the books that we are still circulating. The ones we have problems with are the leather-type covers. The spine labels and classification stickers get gooey and peel up - not just from the heat. They stick at first, but it doesn't take long for the adhesive to soften and the tape starts curling. Does anyone know how to prepare the spines so the tape stays put? Thanks.
