Book Repair Workshops
ISLMA is pleased to sponsor two hands-on book repair summer workshops using KAPCO materials. Learn to extend the life of the materials in your collection through book repair. Quick and easy techniques will be shared for repairing materials including re-inserting loose pages, broken spines, torn header caps, and ripped and torn pages. Registration will be capped at 25 for each event. The workshops will run from 8 - 11:30 with check-in and a light breakfast from 8 - 8:30. The workshops will be held on Monday 7/21 at Westfield Middle School in Bloomingdale and Wednesday 7/23 at University High School in Normal.
There will be a drawing at each workshop for a deluxe paperback protection kit worth $105.
Each participant is asked to bring:
one or two paperback books, preferably new or new-like, to demonstrate covering techniques;
a hardbound book with a book jacket to demonstrate application of book jacket covers;
a stapled book or magazine;
one hardbound book that needs repair and a “naked” hardbound book; i.e., a hardbound book that does NOT have a book jacket cover.
Each participant will be provided with a free sample packet of materials.

Remember these standards, benchmarks, and objectives are aligned to the new Illinois Common Core Standards, AASL and NETS-S standards as well.
Common Core Standards
The new Illinois Learning Standards incorporate the Common Core Standards.
It is important that school librarians become informed about these standards. The state board has made a commitment to the concept and thus it is important for all to be involved and gives librarians the opportunity to take a leadership role. Read more
