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: re-inserting loose pages, broken spines, torn header caps, ripped and torn pages. Each participant is asked to bring:

  • one or 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
  • one hardbound book that needs repair
  • and a “naked” hardbound book; i.e., a hardbound book that does NOT have a book jacket cover

Each participant will be provided with a free sample packet of materials. Several dates and locations to choose from.

Trainer: Tim Weber, KAPCO
