Due to COVID-19 related issues, the format and structure of this event are currently under review. Registration is not open at this time. If you have already registered for this event, you will be notified of any changes. Thank you for your patience as SCKLS determines how best to support your learning needs in a safe and effective manner.

Nicole Penley, outreach services specialist, will lead a training session dealing with basic techniques for repairing circulating books. Basic Book Repair participants need no previous experience in repairing books. Each participant will receive a small book repair kit and manual. Participants are encouraged to bring 2-3 books in need of repair, which will be used for discussion purposes only.

Learn how to:
• Determine which books are appropriate candidates for in-house book repair
• Identify tools appropriate for book repair
• Utilize simple book repair techniques, including repairing torn pages, tipping in loose pages, tightening loose hinges, and repairing broken text blocks

Want to learn these skills but can’t attend this session? Contact Nicole Penley to schedule a possible training option at your library.
