NCPC Book Repair Workshop

Thank you to everyone that attended Craig Fansler’s book repair workshop in June. Photographed to the left are engaged participants with many hands-on activities. It was a blast learning various techniques that can be used in many museums as to properly reapir books that may have been damaged by a variety of things such as time, environmental influnces, water, and more. If you missed this opportunity, this will not be our last book repair workshop, so stay tuned.
