On Friday, September 29 from 8:00 am - 11:00 am, at the Beach Park Middle
School Library, there will be a free training in order to learn how to
repair books. This is a wonderful refresher on how to save and prevent
damage to those books we love!  I have taken this workshop before and each
time I learn something new.

If you are interested, please contact Jeanné Aken off-list, (email and
phone in the signature) to reserve your spot.  Space is limited.  Full
description is below.

Kary Barth, regional sales manager for Kapco Library Products, has a
Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois, Urbana and has
worked with libraries since 1990. Formerly, the national library sales
manager for Kapco, Kary authored a basic book repair guide that was
previously available from Kapco and has presented book protection/repair
workshops in various venues throughout the US.

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.

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; i.e., a hardbound book that does NOT have a book jacket

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