I am finally getting some decent shelves and should have room for some of my cookbooks in the library but I need suggestions about shelving / storing spiral bound cookbooks. The nicer pamphlets I have I put in hanging files but I have no good way to store the ‘better’ spiral bound cookbooks I have. By better I do not mean that they have any financial value, just that I would like to keep them around. Does anybody have any ideas? How do you store your spiral bound cookbooks?

I would suggest you use some Princteton Files like a Public Library uses to keep their Magazines and Journals
in an upright position. I think you could Probably buy some at a local Home Depot or Office Depot or maybe order
them through a catalog that specializes in Office materials.

Get a free catalog from Gaylord-- they'll have several options:

Thanks for the ideas. I had put those cookbooks out of my mind but now I guess I have to do something with them.

I have a collection of Time-Life Foods of the World. The spiral bound recipe booklets tend to unwind and get tangled together. Any hints? Presently, they are stacked to lessen the tangling.

A standard 1" binder with an interior sleeve would also house spiral cookbooks nicely. Add a label to the outside edge of the binder. Otherwise, look thru a recent Brodart catalog for storage ideas, or ask the vendors at the next library conference you attend.
