tore and repaired hinges using Japanese paper, tipped-in loose and torn-out pages, repaired torn end sheets and repaired damaged spines. These are repairs I do almost every day and which I’ve taught as useful skills in the workshops.
After lunch, we also toured Preservation and Special Collections. It was a small but good group. They represented library staff from Appalachian State, UNC-W, Rowan County Public Library the Orange County Historical Society and the Webb Memorial Library in Morehead City. We also managed to fit in making books-always a hit. It was a good day, doing good work.
