Workshop
This is a hands-on workshop designed to demonstrate quick and easy techniques for extending shelf life on general circulating materials in public and school libraries. We will discuss book triage and whether a book is worth saving. Each participant will learn common repairs: tipping in loose pages, broken spines, torn headers, loose or broken hinges, and ripped pages. I will provide tools and materials, and a packet listing where to purchase supplies and how to make the repairs, as well as links to videos.

Please bring actual books from your collection that need these types of repairs:
Broken spine
Loose or broken hinge
Torn header
Loose page
Ripped page
