6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Library Room 160
Do you have a favorite book from childhood with a torn page? Or a hand-me-down cookbook that’s seen better days? Have you ever wondered how a book is physically put together?
Join book repair expert Carolee Harrison from Portland State University Library Special Collections and University Archives and learn the basics of book structure and simple techniques for maintaining your personal library.
Carolee will share:
- A brief history of book structure, with physical models
- How to protect and repair your own books from your personal collection
These tips are directed towards understanding, storing, and repairing regular books in personal collections, not rare or unique materials.
This event is free and open to the public. PSU Library is hosting this event as part of Portland State of Mind.
