Sad Story

A monastery and its entire library burnt to the ground in the California wildfires recently.

This is a really good argument for libraries having a good disaster plan. And although digitization is not the same as preservation, situations like this demonstrate why digital books, with off-site backups of course, can be useful to help keep things available even if their print counterparts are damaged.
