This three-hour comprehensive workshop is designed to demonstrate quick and easy techniques for extending shelf life on general circulating materials. Prevention is the key, but specific, common repairs such as re-inserting loose pages, broken spines, torn header caps, ripped and torn pages, will be addressed.

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 (a hardbound book that does NOT have a book jacket cover).

Each participant will be provided with a free sample packet of materials. There will also be a drawing after the workshop for a Deluxe Paperback Protection Kit from KAPCO retail value of $105.

This workshop is for library staff only and is not open to the general public.

Registration is required. All RAILS libraries are welcome to attend.
