Book Repair

Project #1: Putting Covers Back on Books

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


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


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.


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