Crews were working Wednesday morning to get shelves ready for books returning to the University of Missouri.
But MU Director of Libraries Jim Cogswell said it could be months before all of the books are back in circulation.
In October 2013 mold was discovered on more than 600,000 printed books and journals that were being stored in a cavern. The books and journals were shipped off to receive special treatment.
Cogswell said there are still 140,000 books in Texas getting treated, but he expects them back within the next month. When they return, he said each book will have to get individually inspected.
