The necessity of preservation activities in libraries cannot be over emphasized. Without preservation, no informative, educative, and historical materials of yester years cannot be made available for today’s development. Libraries will not be in existence, serving their clientele, if their collections are not preserved. This research tries to evaluate the strength and weakness of preservation activities in school libraries, using Federal Government Academy, suleja as a case study. The investigation shows factors that cause deterioration of materials in school libraries, and it also tries to proffer solution via recommendation; and how the effects of these agents can be brought to zero level thereby increasing the life span of the materials available in the library
