Book Repair

Project #1: Putting Covers Back on Books

We are putting the beautiful covers back on the picture books!

STEP ONE:

Once the covers have been matched with the books, they will be put on our dark wood book cart.

STEP TWO:

Cover books with dust jacket. Watch the video below to learn how.

Two important notes:

  • Do not use scotch tape to attach dust jacket. It will just rip off. Use the special book tape with fibers.
  • Attach book tape to dust jacket and book, rather than just cover to cover as in video. See Wonder on cart for an example of type of tape and where/how it is applied.

STEP THREE:

Put covered books back onto cart with a note that says needs labels. Mr. Dubuque will print spine and barcode labels to be attached.
