Noah Smutz is a book conservator for the Smithsonian Libraries. In this role he works almost exclusively on book adopted through the Libraries’ Adopt-a-Book program. These items are comprised mainly of materials from the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library and the Dibner Library of the History of Science and Technology but may come from any branch of the Libraries.
When not working Noah enjoys making tools, bookbinding, exploring the outdoors, and reading a good book.
