This session will cover the basics of book repair for circulating items, materials to be used, and different techniques to repair books like a pro. This is an all-day session and will run from 8:00am-4:00pm, Friday July 17 in Newport, OR. 

This session only has the capacity for 9 more participants so you’ll want to register ASAP! Once those 9 participants have been registered any additional ones will be wait-listed.

Shake It Off or Check It Out?

It's an "homage to Taylor Swift and her outspoken support of public libraries and literacy and in celebration of National Library Week".
