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.
