With our book preservation short course, you will learn simple techniques to repair and preserve old books in your library. Give old old favourites a new lease on life and get torn pages serviceable again. Learn to cover without wrinkles and air bubbles. Recognise the correct adhesive tape for torn pages. Fix the tear inside the cover before the spine becomes detached.

This is a hands on session with a library teacher. Bring some of your old books to work on.
