This workshop is limited to 25 participants and is now full. Registration is closed.

This hands-on workshop is designed to demonstrate quick and easy techniques for extending shelf life on general circulating materials. Prevention is the key, but we will address specific, common repairs: re-inserting loose pages, broken spines, torn header caps, ripped and torn pages.

Materials required:
Each participant is asked to bring materials to be used during the hands-on activities:
* one or two paperback books, preferable new or new-like
* one hardbound book with a book jacket
* one stapled book or magazine
* one hardbound book that needs repair
* one hardbound book without a book jacket

Desired Outcomes:
More efficient/effective ways to maintain general circulating print materials
