Join the Office of Library Services, NYC School Library Association, and Kapco for a hands-on workshop designed to demonstrate quick and easy techniques for extending shelf life of your school library’s collection. Prevention is the key, but specific, common repairs (re-inserting loose pages, broken spines, torn header caps, ripped and torn pages) will also be addressed.
Each participant is asked to bring: one or two paperback books, preferably new or like-new, 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!
There will also be a drawing for a Deluxe Paperback Protection Kit, as well as other giveaways!
