Placing things on top of slipcased seform on bookcase

Question:

Hi,

If you have seforim in slipcase set standing on a bookcase, is it an issue to put things on top of the slipcase (non seforim)?
Thank you

 

Answer:

Hello,

It depends what is being put on top of the slipcase, and how think the cardboard on it is. If it is something that is very light, such as a pen, and the case will not bend because of it, then it is all right, however, to put a library book on it, and the case will bend, then essentially it is as if it was put on the sefer, and it would be an issue.

Best wishes
