Book Repair Workshop
November 3, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
This workshop is designed to demonstrate quick and easy techniques for extending shelf life on general circulating materials. Prevention is the key, but we will be addressing specific, common repairs: tipping in loose pages, broken spines, torn header caps, ripped and torn pages.
Each participant is asked to bring: two paperback books, preferably new or new-like, to demonstrate covering techniques, a hardbound book with a book jacket to demonstrate application of book jacket covers, a stapled book or magazine, a book that needs to have a loose page tipped in and one hardbound book that needs repair. Please also bring a pair of scissors.
Each participant will be provided with a free sample packet of materials.
