This workshop will 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: re-inserting loose pages, broken spines, torn header caps, ripped and torn pages. Each participant will need to bring the following:
- 1 or 2 paperback books, preferably new or new-like, to demonstrate covering techniques
- 1 hardbound book with a book jacket to demonstrate application of book jacket covers
- 1 stapled book or magazine
- 1 hardbound book that needs repair
- 1 “naked” hardbound book (i.e. a hardbound book that does NOT have a book jacket cover)
Please note: Seating is limited to 30 people. A library can send one person. Attendees will receive tips and resources so he or she can return to the library and train other staff members.
