Book Repair Workshop

November 3 @ 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.

Presented by: Kary Barth, Regional Sales Manager, Kapco Library Products Kary has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois, Urbana and has worked with libraries since 1990.  Formerly, the national library sales manager for Kapco, Kary authored a basic book repair guide that was previously available from Kapco and has presented book protection/repair workshops in various venues throughout the US.

Registration is limited to 25 participants.
