Workshop – Book Repair

Date: Thursday, April 11, 2013
Time: 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Place: Rotterdam Branch Library, 1100 N. Westcott Rd, Schenectady 12306
Presenter: Kary Barth, Regional Sales Manager, Kapco Library Products

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. The workshop will be hands-on, and is appropriate for library staff or volunteers that want to extend the life of their collections.
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 ;
– a “naked” hardbound book; i.e., a hardbound book that does NOT have a book jacket cover ;
– a pair of scissors.

Each participant will be provided with a free sample packet of materials.

Attendance is limited to 25 people.  MVLS library staff and volunteers have priority – on March 18, any remaining slots will be made available to libraries from our neighboring systems. Please register using this online form (complete one form per attendee.)
