Book restoration will be available at Bright Library tomorrow
BRIGHT Library will host a special bookbinding event tomorrow.
Traditional Bookbinding, who are based in the North East, will showcase the lost art of bookbinding to help rescue old books, and are inviting people to come along and receive free book care and advice.
If anyone has old books that require restoration, book inspections will be provided at the exhibition.
Traditional Bookbinding’s Chi Chi Wang said many people do not know there is a professional trade of restoring old books.
“The first thing people ask when they bring books to us is, can it be repaired,” she said.
“Most old books may look beyond repair, but so far we have repaired many old books and brought them back to the original or better condition.”
Ms Wang sad if a book is not in need of repair archival storage boxes and archival acid-free wrapping paper will also be available on the day.
The bookbinding session will take place at the Bright Library on Thursday, April 15 from 10am to 2pm.
